Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Leicester City highlights (0-0)

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 vs 0 Leicester City highlights 7.2

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers speaking to BBC Sport: "We usually have close games with Wolves, we just won the game 1-0 against them earlier in the season so it's always going to be a tight game.

"We were just missing that final ball, the final finish. You come off the back of a tough week and come here and we didn't manage to make that break through but we came here with a point and take the point away.

"Organisation was good, the players put so much into the game. Wolves showed us respect, playing with a back five when they've been working with a back four recently - they were determined to sit deep and block up space. We didn't quite make the break through but I can't fault the players they gave everything."

On Jamie Vardy starting matches: "He's only had a day and a half training with us really so even though he was available and fit we didn't want to risk it, we'll see about Wednesday hopefully he can get some proper game time in then."

On Wilfred Ndidi return: "He has trained with us this week but we thought it was maybe too much of a risk today but hoping he will be back on Wednesday with us too."

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo speaking to BBC Sport: "It was a good game, both teams are very organised. We had good spells in possession and chances to score. Positives from the game. Finding that balance with defending and going to attack. We want the young players to grow and improve."

On injuries to players: "It is a big blow as we are trying to recover players. But we keep on fighting. This is not a positive but an obligation - we have to fight. I must see it every day. Tomorrow we have training and commitment must be the same."

On Jonny going off: "It was something decided already by him and us and the medical staff. He is returning and we have to be very careful. It was decision based on our future and having to preserve the player."

On Fabio Silva's chance, saved by Kasper Schmeichel: "Fabio must do better. He is young and very talented but that moment requires a better finish. Tomorrow we will work on that"
