Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed his fit-again striker will feature at some stage in Wednesday’s fifth-round tie. The 34-year-old made his comeback after a groin operation with half-an-hour in Sunday’s goalless draw at Wolves, having missed three matches. Rodgers wants to use the cup tie to sharpen him up ahead of the weekend clash with Liverpool.
Brendan Rodgers said: “Wednesday’s a big game for us. He hasn’t lost too much fitness. It’s only been a couple of weeks. We gave him half-an-hour and you could see the dynamism he brings the team. We’ll definitely get him some minutes on Wednesday, whether it’s the first period of the game or the second.”
