It has been quite the few months for defender Conor Shaughnessy, who has become a key member of the squad at Leeds despite never appearing for the club prior to this season.
The young Irishman came up through the ranks at Reading but didn’t earn a first-team appearance for the Royals, and had to wait until last month for his senior debut, coming in Leeds’ 3-2 win at Bolton on the opening day.
And he has since gone from strength to strength with four starts in all competitions, two in the Carabao Cup, and he’ll likely get the nod again such is the Whites’ defensive problems.
And Shaughnessy will know that he’ll have to perform at a high level both aerially and on the ground against Wood, whose all-round abilities as a striker are likely to seriously test the inexperienced 21-year-old on Tuesday.
