Simpson confident Leicester can cope with suspended goal ace Vardy

Danny Simpson has stated that Leicester City are good enough to deal with the absence of the suspended Jamie Vardy.

Vardy received a second yellow card for a dive in the 2-2 draw against West Ham United on Sunday and as a result, the striker will be unavailable for the all-important encounter against Swansea City this weekend.

The loss of Vardy, which may be extended after he was charged with improper conduct by the FA, is undoubtedly a big blow for Leicester but defender Simpson is confident that the Foxes are capable of dealing with the absence of their star man.

The full-back said: "Vardy has been one of the best players in the league. But Leo came on and got a point for us, that was a lot of pressure for anyone.

"Other players have scored in the team and before last week Vards hadn't scored for five or six games, so we'll deal with it."
