Brendan Rodgers provides Jamie Vardy & James Maddison injury updates ahead of Roma


Brendan Rodgers has been speaking to the media on Wednesday ahead of Leicester City’s clash with AS Roma on Thursday.

The Foxes will face Roma in the second of two Europa Conference League semi-finals ties in just over 24 hours’ time.

Leicester and Roma would draw the first leg 1-1 after Lorenzo Pellegrini’s 15th-minute opener was cancelled out by an own goal from Gianluca Mancini after 67 minutes. This leaves the tie very open, with it still hard to choose who will be facing Feyenoord or Marseille in the competition’s debut showpiece.


Leicester injury update

Ahead of the tie, Rodgers has provided updates on three Leicester players.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (calf) and James Maddison (hip) missed Leicester’s loss to Tottenham this past weekend. However, when speaking on Wednesday, Rodgers seemed to confirm that both players would be fine to face Roma:

"They’re okay," the Northern Irishman told the media at LCFC Training Ground on Wednesday.

Rodgers also confirmed that Jamie Vardy will be in contention to feature vs Jose Mourinho and co. this week:

"They trained yesterday and came through well." On Jamie Vardy's condition, meanwhile, Rodgers confirmed: "He's coming through well, so he's okay for the game."
