Eddie Howe unwilling to dip into the transfer market to replace striker despite two-month lay-off

I am really pleased for Junior. He has had a long time out of action, but it didn't look like it when he played,
I'm so pleased when any player gets that number of opportunities – it means their positioning is very good and their intelligence levels very high,
He [Vardy] is a very good player, an outstanding centre forward who has done really well in recent seasons,
Howe said. Whether the break inspires him, from our perspective we obviously want to keep him quiet and try to deal with his main strengths.
