Jamie Vardy confident of Foxes turnaround

Jamie Vardy says his Leicester side will keep working hard to turn their recent slump around.

The England man opened the scoring after just three minutes at Anfield on Saturday but was a spectator for much of the remainder of the game, as Liverpool dominated on their way to a 2-1 win.

Although games like Saturday’s are not ones which the Foxes’ season will be built on, they are now without a win in five in all competitions but remain eighth in the table.

It could be deemed a false position with them seven points adrift of seventh place Burnley and Claude Puel will be desperate to get back on track against Huddersfield on Monday.

The Foxes are 1.70 to win the match, with the draw 3.80 and David Wagner’s plucky Terriers priced at 5.00 to claim a victory at the King Power.

Vardy will be desperate to add to his tally of 10 for the season and will fancy himself against a team whom he netted against back in September.

Despite being second best at Anfield, the 30-year-old says he was pleased with the endeavour of his team and has pledged to ensure they keep on working hard to try and force their way up the table.

Vardy told the BBC: “It was a good effort, the boys dug in and fought until the end but today it wasn’t to be.

“All the second balls were going to them and they capitalised on that. That is something we need to correct in future games.

“The team spirit is still there and that’s something we need to take into the next game. We need to make sure we’re fully fit, keep fighting and keep collecting points.”
