Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says their togetherness shone through during their 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Vardy converted a 79th-minute penalty to hand Leicester City a point after they fell one goal and one man behind at Brighton.

The visitors played for over an hour with one man down and displayed incredible fighting spirit to earn a point.

“I think it was a good point to get,” Vardy told the club’s website.

“Obviously, being down to 10 men and 1-0 down, you’ve seen how the lads have battled together and how we’ve taken it to Brighton even though we were reduced to 10 [men].

“I think with that performance, especially in the second half, we definitely deserved it.

“It’s just a testament to all the boys and how close we are as a group. Everyone will run themselves into the ground for each other and that showed on the pitch.”
