Leicester boss Rodgers worried about Vardy fitness

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers admits there's concerns over Jamie Vardy's injury knocks.

Vardy missed the surprise defeat to Norwich with the recurrence of a calf problem, his third injury since the turn of the year.

“It is a concern, we've spoken around that with him and the medical team," said Rodgers.

“He's not out for long, it's a low-grade strain on the same calf, so he'll be back in, if it's not for Birmingham [in the FA Cup on Wednesday], he'll definitely be fine for the game against Aston Villa [on Monday, March 9].

“But it's something that we hope will clear up soon."
