Player to watch – Jamie Vardy

Leicester's veteran forward still has that desire to score goals.

Former England international Jamie Vardy joint-top scores for Leicester this season with 10 league goals and the 37-year-old heads in Saturday's clash with QPR in great form with seven goals in his last 10 appearances.

Leicester old Fox still has an eye for goal

We're backing Vardy to enjoy another fruitful game in front of goal against a QPR side that don't have the best of defensive records this season and the Foxes should go on to claim a comfortable victory.
