Player to watch – Chris Wood

Nottingham Forest striker Chris Wood is enjoying his best form of the season at the perfect time for his club.

The former Burnley striker has netted 12 league goals so far this season and has found the back of the net in each of his last four outings in the Premier League.

Will Wood's goals save Nottingham Forest this season?

Forest are going to need to score plenty of goals between now and the end of the season if they are going to remain in the Premier League and we're backing Wood to score and guide the relegation battlers to a massive three points on Saturday.
