CHRIS Wood is aiming to live up to his price tag by becoming a 'great name' in a Clarets shirt.

The £15million man has made a lightning fast start to his Burnley career and having scored off the bench in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham at Wembley before the international break he made it two in two by netting the winner at Turf Moor against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The New Zealand international also scored a hat-trick while away with the All Whites on international duty to take his tally to five goals in his last three games.

He made an immediate impact at Wembley with his injury-time equaliser and then gave the Turf Moor faithful a glimpse of what to expect with a confident finish against Palace on Sunday, and the 25-year-old was delighted to mark his home debut with a goal.

“It was fantastic. Hopefully I can go on and do great things here and be a great name in a Burnley shirt and I’m looking forward to doing that together,” he said.

“Normally as a striker you have first instincts and your first thought is the right one, and it was (on Sunday).

“It’s one off the back, especially at home. It’s nice that I can tick that off and now I can focus on a lot more things, both for myself and the team. Hopefully I can go onto more and bigger things.”

Wood showed the composure and finishing ability that helped him finish last season as Championship top scorer with Leeds when he capitalised on a short backpass before finishing first time past Wayne Hennessey inside the first three minutes.

But Burnley had to dig deep to hold on to that advantage in the face of Palace pressure.

"The team worked tirelessly and the back four and five, including when Popey came on, were absolutely fantastic,” Wood said.

“Everybody worked their socks off and they did very well. Sometimes you just have to grit your teeth and do it and today was one of those days. We dug in really well and showed our character and this is what this Burnley team is all about.

“It’s not just the strikers, we’ve got some great players in midfield and out wide that can cause major problems, so if we are keeping clean sheets then we have a great chance of winning games."

The win took Burnley to seventh in the league on seven points as they cemented a bright start to the campaign, but Wood insists there is a long way to go.

“After international breaks you don’t know how teams are going to start, so it’s nice we have kicked on and hopefully go on a good run in this little period before the next break," he told Clarets Player.

"It is a good start, but that’s all it is. There’s a long way to go in this Premier League season and we are going to fight like anything to make sure we are doing what we can and make sure we are pointing up that league."
