Isak, 23, has only played three matches since signing in August, scoring twice, while Wilson was limited to 18 appearances in all competitions last season due to consistent injury issues. 

The doubts over Isak and Wilson has opened the door for Wood, who scored a penalty against Vallecano.

‘Chris has been hugely important,’ added Howe.
