Leicester City striker Chris Wood is targeting Charlton return

Leicester City's Chris Wood says he has a chance of being fit to face Charlton Athletic at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

The striker's absence because of a knee injury has been felt by City as they have lost their last two games without him.

However, Wood, who has scored seven goals in six games since joining City on New Year's Day from West Brom, said he was hopeful he will be able to return to action against Chris Powell's Addicks.

"The injury is all good," he said at yesterday's fans signing session at the King Power Fanstore, when 2,500 City supporters queued up to meet the players, who stopped for three hours instead of the planned 90 minutes.

"It is coming along nicely and I still have a few days of treatment to get it right. Hopefully, it will be okay for Tuesday.

"That is the plan. If everything goes well during the next few days, there is a chance I can be involved.

"It is always going to be tough when you come back from an injury, but it is just one of those things you have to deal with.

"Every footballer goes through it. It is about dealing with it and making sure we get the right result on Tuesday."

Wood said he hoped to continue his excellent partnership with fellow striker David Nugent on Tuesday.

The pair were in great form until Wood picked up the injury in training before the defeat at Peterborough last weekend.

"I will go back out there and do my job, and link up with whoever is up there with me and, hopefully, that is Nuge," said Wood."

Wood's excellent form in January led to him being named in the three-man short-list for the player of the month award, but he just missed out to Watford striker Matej Vydra.

"To settle so well at this club and then to get nominated for the award is something I will never forget," said Wood. "It is amazing. Vydra is a quality player, a good striker, and he has done so well for Watford.."
