Brighton boss Gus Poyet admitted Chris Wood was the kind of striker he would like to sign after the New Zealander's brace in Millwall's 2-2 draw at the Amex Stadium.

After Wood's double the Seagulls battled back to force their third successive draw with substitute Kazenga LuaLua hitting a superb 61st-minute strike before David Lopez's penalty two minutes from time. Poyet has made no secret of his desire to spend big on a goalscorer he believes could clinch a place in the top six of the npower Championship.

Wood, who is on loan from West Brom, now boasts 10 goals this season and Poyet said: "He is the kind of player we would like to bring in. He's only 21 and I feel he will be a top, top player. When he was with us on loan he was a baby but now he is maturing. He's a man now. He's clinical and brave and we have played a part in helping him on his way."
