Burnley striker Chris Wood failed in his bid to match the Premier League record set by Craig Bellamy many years ago in the colours of Merseyside giants Liverpool.

Wood could have matched the record of Craig Bellamy if he had found the back of the net against Champions League chasers Leicester City when his Clarets side hosted the Foxes at Turf Moor earlier this month. Ahead of the game, Burnley had won three of their four Premier League games with former holders Leicester City.

Burnley striker Wood had scored in three successive games in the Premier League against former club Leicester City and he could have become only the second player to score in four straight Premier League matches against a former club after ex-Newcastle United and Cardiff City striker Craig Bellamy if he was on target against Leicester City.

Wood failed to score as Leicester City recovered from conceding an early goal to another Burnley striker in MatejVydra to earn a point. Czech Republic international Vydra scored for the home side in the fourth minute before Nigerian player Kelechi Iheanachoequalised for the Foxes in the first half. Neither side could add to the tally as the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw.

The result meant that Leicester City could not do the double over Burnley for the first time in their history in the Premier League era. Leicester City beat Burnley 4-2 at home in their first league meeting this season.

Since failing to score against Leicester City, Burnley striker Wood has netted two goals in as many games in the Premier League.
