The 29-year-old returned from injury by coming off the bench in the 4-0 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Now, the New Zealand striker gets the nod from the start, partnering Matej Vydra in attack.

A win for the Clarets against a depleted Leicester this evening will ease fears of a relegation battle.

@pye_luke: I'm loving Wood being back but I hate seeing Brownhill wasted at right mid.

@Ethan99Con: Drop Jack Cork, put Brownhill in his position and Jay Rod wide right?

@Steeley_BFC: Big one tonight. Leicester not in great form and some injuries so we’ve got a chance! Come on Burnley

@_cathalbreslin_: if Wood and Vyds don’t work, don’t know what will.

@_bfcdanny: WOOD AND VYDRA WE WON

@JoshuaPhilipSm1: Nice to see @officialcwood back in the lineup, come on man!

@StueyG2009: Woody had to start after Sunday, we need a focal point up front. Let's get the 3 points that will ease the pressure once again, UTC!!!! #twitterclarets

@IWGPChrisBFC: Missed you big man, now bag.

@danbenn2: WOOODDYYYYYYY
