Leicester ace Vardy set for emotional Fleetwood reunion

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is set to face former club Fleetwood Town in the third round of the FA Cup.

Fleetwood have set up an FA Cup third round meeting with Leicester by defeating Hereford.

Vardy will head back to the club where he scored so many goals that Leicester made him the most expensive non-league player in history in a £1million transfer five years ago.

For Fleetwood, the £171,000 cash prize that will come from hosting the tie live on the BBC is sure to come in most useful.
