In­jured Vardy is a doubt for Blades tie

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Le­ices­ter man­ager Craig Shake­speare has played down Jamie Vardy’s an­kle scare as the Foxes’ in­jury list grows.

The Eng­land striker was forced off in added time of Satur­day’s 2-0 win over Brighton at the King Power Sta­dium.

Shake­speare takes his side to Sh­effield United in the League Cup to­mor­row ahead of Satur­day’s Pre­mier League trip to Manch­ester United, but be­lieves Vardy’s is­sue is not se­ri­ous.

“I have just left Ward 10 in there with a few re­ceiv­ing treat­ment,” said Shake­speare.

“Jamie ob­vi­ously had a few tus­sles to­day and has an an­kle heav­ily strapped with an ice pack on it.”
