Chris Wood: Leicester City striker injured for FA Cup

Chris Wood

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson expects striker Chris Wood to recover from a knee injury in time for the next Championship match against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday, 19 February.

Wood missed Saturday's 2-1 loss to Peterborough and Pearson was reluctant to give details about the injury.

But he told BBC Radio Leicester: "He has a knock on his knee but it is not something we are too concerned about."

Wood will miss Tuesday's fourth-round FA Cup replay with Huddersfield Town.

And he would also be unavailable should the Foxes progress into the fifth round, where they would face Wigan Athletic.

Pearson added: "Hopefully he will be available for the next league game."

Wood, 21, has scored seven goals in his six games for the Foxes.
