Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy insists he will not let his personal achievements effect his game during the last few months of the season.

The former England international scored his 100th goal for the Foxes last weekend as Brendan Rodgers’ men beat Fulham.

His brace saw him become only the seventh player to his a century of goals and he is now just three behind Academy graduate Gary Lineker.

Vardy admits the achievement is something he is incredibly proud of but the 32-year-old insists it will not effect his work-rate and determination.

The former Fleetwood star has now scored 12 goals this term and he is ready to kick on now under Rodgers.

He told LCFC TV: “It’s a great feeling. Obviously, we didn’t know at the start if it was 98 or 99, so I think it’s a good job I put the two in!

“I’m just like any striker. You want to obviously score as many as possible and pick up points for your team. I’ll just keep doing that. I’ll just keep knuckling down and like I say, hopefully more goals will come.

“That’s the main thing you want, you want to be scoring goals and picking up points for the Club. It’s a Club where I’ve been since 2012, so long may that continue.

“It’s been a lot of hard work, but there’s still a lot more to knuckle down with and concentrate on to hopefully keep taking over these next milestones.”

Leicester take on Burnley on Saturday and they are 2.50 to win, with the draw 3.30 and Burnley are 3.00 to secure the three points.
