Leicester striker Vardy excited facing Fleetwood in FA Cup

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is excited to be facing Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup.

The striker spent a memorable year at the little Lancashire seaside club in the Conference before signing for Leicester in 2012, scoring 34 goals in just 42 matches.

“It will be great, it will be a great day. There will be a good atmosphere up there and a few faces I know so it will be good to see them as well.

“It will be good to go back there and play with some ex-teammates – there is only one left I think! It will be good to see Pondy! [Fleetwood's stalwart defender Nathan Pond, who has spent over a decade playing for them]. There are staff there as well I still know."
