English Premier League: All Whites star, Nottingham Forest striker Chris Wood to miss rest of season

Nottingham Forest striker Chris Wood will miss the remainder of the English Premier League season, due to injury.

Wood, who joined Forest on loan from Newcastle United in January, picked up a thigh injury in a 3-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur on March 11.

He travelled to Auckland for the first of New Zealand's two matches against China last week, but did not feature in the game and pulled out of the squad before the second match, returning to his club for further treatment.

Wood's injury was confirmed by Forest boss Steve Cooper: "Chris Wood is out for the season. He's picked up an injury during the international break."

Forest are 16th with 26 points from 27 games, two points above the relegation zone. They host Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are 13th on 27 points from 28 matches, on Saturday.
