Poyet wants Wood return

Published Add your comment

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."
