Burnley striker Wood strikes an important goal in the Premier League against Leeds

The New Zealand international opened the scoring against his old club and wrote his name in the record books

Burnley striker Chris Wood drew 1-1 in his Premier League history with Leeds United, while the Clarets striker scored the 30,000th goal in the history of the competition.

The New Zealand international has opened the scoring against his old club to put Sean Dyche’s side on course for an apparent first league win at home since January.

Although the late equalizer from Patrick Bamford ensured that the victory was snatched from their grasp, it did not stop Wood from writing his name in the record books of the top flight.

What has been achieved?

As Tottenham took a lead in the first half through Son Heung-min against Watford, the honor of scoring a new milestone at Turf Moor was the honor.

After starting slowly before coming together to get their visitors better, Burnley earned their lead when Wood was ready to reach a short distance against the club from which he joined the Clarets in 2017.

This means that he joins a rare group of players who have distinguished the numerical limits in the Premier League since its inception in 1992.
