      Leicester hotshot averages goal every 94 minutes

      Veteran Vardy boasts best strike rate in 'The 92'

      2024/04/30 10:51

      He may now be 37-years-old, but age has certainly not dulled Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy's goalscoring instincts. 

      The former England international fired home a double last night, as the already-promoted Foxes recorded a 3-0 win away at Preston North End to secure the Championship title. 

      Vardy's 17th and 18th league goals of the season sank the Lilywhites with 22-year-old Kasey McAteer adding a third goal to set the seal on a fantastic evening at Deepdale and a superb season for Leicester - Enzo Maresca's side bouncing back into the Premier League at the first time of asking after their relegation from the top flight in 2022/23. 

      Although striker Vardy's game-time has been more limited this season, he has still managed to have an incredible impact on Leicester's promotion campaign - and his brace last night means he has averaged a goal every 94 minutes this term in the second tier. 

      Incredibly, of players to score 10+ goals this season, Vardy has the most prolific strike rate across the entire top four tiers - even the likes of Premier League hotshot Erling Haaland (105 minutes per goal) trailing in his wake.

      As a football fan, I have to say @vardy7's goal scoring instincts are still on at 37 years old! Congrats @LCFC on securing the Championship title and bouncing back into the Premier League
