All Whites striker Chris Wood has netted a late equaliser for his new club Leicester to earn a 1-1 draw and an FA Cup fourth-round replay with Huddersfield Town.

Wood, a 60th minute substitution, slotted home team-mate Ritchie De Laet's low cross to send the tie to a replay.

Minutes after coming on, Wood, who transferred to Leicester earlier this month, forced a great save from Huddersfield's keeper Alex Smithies on a curling shot from just outside the area.

The draw ended a run of five straight victories for Leicester.

What do you make of Tommy Smith's decision not to play for the All Whites?

It's fair enough. He's already got a massive workload.

He's been a great servant for the All Whites. His request not to play is fine by me.

It's disappointing to say the least. What happened to national pride?

It's unbelievable. He shouldn't be picked for NZ again.
