Birmingham City 1-3 Leeds United

Chris Wood (left) is the top scorer in the Championship this season, with 22 goals

Chris Wood scored twice at former club Birmingham City as Leeds United won for the third time in four Championship games to move a point behind third-placed Huddersfield.

Wood's brace, and a clinically-taken late third from Alfonso Pedraza, meant a third home defeat in four for Blues.

After Wood's 14th-minute lob, Craig Gardner levelled on 63 minutes with a low 25-yard left-foot curler.

But Wood scored from close range before Pedraza sealed the points.

Relive Leeds' win at Birmingham as it happened

Wood, who had a prolific half season on loan at City from neighbours West Brom in 2011-12, now has 25 goals this season in all competitions - with 22 of those in the league.

But, perhaps more pertinently, his brace takes him two ahead of Newcastle's Dwight Gayle at the top of the Championship goal charts.
