Waghorn To Fight For Spot

Martyn Waghorn

Leicester City striker Martyn Waghorn is adamant that he is happy to play a role as an impact player.

A former Apprentice at Sunderland, Waghorn was tipped by many to enjoy a bright future when he broke in to the first team at the Stadium of Light.

Now enjoying a loan spell at Leicester the youngster has been used as a substitute in ten of City’s eleven league games so far this season.

And he has shone coming off the bench, not least on Saturday, where his second goal in a City shirt earned the Foxes a draw with Coventry.

But Waghorn told BBC Radio Leicester that he is not getting impatient:

“I’m really happy to be coming on. Whatever the Manager wants me to do I’ll do it.”

Waghorn faces fierce competition for one of the two striker’s roles at the Walkers Stadium with Steve Howard, Paul Gallagher, Yann Kermorgant, DJ Campbell and Dany N’Guessan all vying to partner an ‘on-fire’ Matty Fryatt.

But Waghorn knows the second striker’s spot is still very much available.

“It’s up for grabs,” he said. “But whoever it is will do a great job. If it’s me then great if it’s not then I’ll support whoever it is.”
