Chris Wood is prepared for a hostile reception from Millwall fans when he lines up for Leicester his old club on Friday. Wood was a prolific goalscorer for the London club during a loan spell at The Den from West Brom earlier this season, netting 11 times in 19 appearances. The New Zealand international striker had the chance to join Kenny Jackett's team on a permanent deal in January but instead opted to remain in the Midlands and sign for the Foxes. Ahead of the Championship fixture between the two sides at the King Power Stadium, Wood said: "The reception might be one I won't like. "It is one of those things. It will be the first time in my career I will have to deal with that, but I am looking forward to the game. "I did very well in the short time I was with Millwall. I made myself proud. I put in the right performances and scored goals at vital times. "I was scoring goals and playing well down there and Leicester took note of that. When they came in, I had to make a decision and I chose Leicester. "I could have joined Millwall permanently but when I weighed it up, after speaking to the managers at Millwall and Leicester, I just felt it was right here to give me an added chance to do well. "It was my choice to join Leicester. I had the option of both. I looked it over for a number of weeks and went back and forth on the decision. But I knew my time here would be better and give me the drive and ambition to take it on to the next level." The 24-year-old, back with the Pilgrims for a second spell, will now be available for every match in their battle against relegation to the Blue Square Bet Premier. Reid, who has played 11 times for Argyle since initially making the loan move in January, scored the first goal of that spell in their 2-0 win at Southend last time out. He played 25 times for the Glovers this season, scoring six times, before heading out on loan. Yeovil announced on Wednesday that Middlesbrough midfielder Matty Dolan and Fulham defender Dan Burn will stay at Huish Park until the end of the season. The Jambos right-back, 26, has been out since rupturing his cruciate knee ligament during an indoor training session last April but has almost completed his rehabilitation. "Jamie has come through two under-20 games, he played 60 minutes in one and 75 in the other and looked really good," said Locke. "He has trained for a number of weeks so he will come into contention for the squad for the weekend." Locke's own career was disrupted by injury and thus he empathised with the former Kilmarnock player's frustration during his spell on the sidelines. He said: "I know exactly what he has gone through. Unfortunately for me I was in the same position. "It is a nightmare. You just want to get out on the pitch. "He has had a couple of niggles which you will get being out as long as he has, but he has worked really hard and hopefully he will get his rewards before the end of the season in terms of he might get a few first-team games. "But he has been out for a long time so to do anything silly now would be stupid of him. "I think it is important that he gets a few games before now and the end of the season, gets a good pre-season behind him and hopefully we will see the best of him at the start of next season."
