Waghorn happy as an impact player

Martyn Waghorn
Waghorn has not yet started a match for Leicester

Leicester City striker Martyn Waghorn insists he is fully prepared to play a role as an impact player.

Loan signing Waghorn has been used as a substitute in 10 of Leicester's 11 league games so far this season.

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

But Waghorn told BBC Radio Leicester 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 has joined on loan from Premier League side Sunderland but with top-scorer Matt Fryatt having nailed down one of the two striker's roles, competition for places is fierce.


Steve Howard, Paul Gallagher, Yann Kermorgant, DJ Campbell and Dany N'Guessan are all vying to partner eight-goal frontman Fryatt.

And 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."
