Vardy: I don't practice shooting

Cape Town - Despite sitting second in the Premier League goal-scoring charts this season, Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy reveals that he does not often practise shooting during training.

The England international netted his 21st goal of the campaign when he scored a brace against struggling Sunderland on Sunday and says that manager Claudio Ranieri does not let him practise shooting often.

"I don't really get the chance to practise that much on my finishing because we have our shooting drills early in the week when the gaffer's wanting me to rest my legs," Vardy said.

"So normally, when there's a bit of shooting, the gaffer tells me to go inside! I'll keep doing that if it means I'm saving my legs - and goals - for games."

The 29-year-old was also keen to praise his midfield supplier Danny Drinkwater for their good working relationship, which has seen the Foxes become runaway favourites to clinch their first Premier League title as they boast a seven-point lead with five games left to play.

"'Drinky' knows exactly where I'm going to be," Vardy added. "He doesn't have to look most of the time. As long as I know the rough area where it's going to go, I'll be on my bike and chasing the ball down."
