Wood's flick from close range put Sean Dyche's Clarets in front one minute after the hour but Leeds ensured they left Sunday's Premier League clash with a draw as Patrick Bamford netted four minutes from time.

Pressed on Burnley being disappointed not to leave with all three points, Wood told Clarets Plus: "I guess you can say that, a little a bit disappointing.

"I think it's just in the way of going up and then conceding late on, it's a bit of a kick in the teeth. But that's life.

"I thought we did extremely well. The team was fantastic.

"I don't know if we deserved the win but I thought we ground it out, making ourselves a good opponent for a win."
