Leicester City's Jamie Vardy aims to silence Millwall fans
Jamie Vardy is looking to silence the Millwall crowd when Leicester City make the trip to the New Den this afternoon.
The striker was on target for the first time in 10 games when his last-minute shot earned City a point against Barnsley last weekend.
With Martyn Waghorn sidelined following an operation to remove his appendix, this afternoon's clash could give Vardy a chance to add to his tally of five goals for the season.
City face a tough test against a physical Millwall side unbeaten on home turf in six Championship games – and there is also the intimidating atmosphere created by the New Den faithful.

"Just put the ball in the back of the net and it soon quietens them down," said Vardy.
The former Fleetwood Town striker said he is used to physical clashes from his days in the Conference.
"It's just all part and parcel of the game," he said. You just have to make sure there is no retaliation so you don't get yourself sent off.
"Millwall are a physical side, they aren't going to shy away from a tackle so you've got to be prepared."
Despite a lack of goals, Vardy has endeared himself to the City fans with his incredible work-rate. The 25-year-old said it has always been a key aspect of his game.
"You've just got to keep going all the way until the end. A bit of aggression in there with your tackling also doesn't go amiss.
"I always put in 100 per cent, even in training. You have got to train how you're going to play.
"Defending always starts from the front, if you don't defend from the front it's down to the midfield. If that doesn't work then the teams can get straight through.
"So you have to keep working hard up front. It's a team effort but I don't think any of us will stop until the final whistle has gone.
"A lot of the games are going to be tight, it's not going to be an easy run-in, so you've got to keep on going to the end."
Vardy's goal against Barnsley ended a nine-game drought and he hoped it would be a sign of things to come.
"I don't want to be going through a dry spell like that again," said Vardy. "You've always got to stay confident."
