Edgar to miss Leicester clash

20 August 2010 11:29
urnley boss Brian Laws will be without defender David Edgar when Championship rivals Leicester City visit Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Canadian made his first start for more than six months when he stood in for the injured Tyrone Mears at right-back in last weekend's draw at Ipswich.

However, he was sent off after picking up two yellow cards and now serves a one-match ban.

Laws expects Mears to shake off a shin injury and fill the right-back slot but defender Michael Duff remains sidelined with a calf injury.

Midfielder Chris McCann is out for six months with a knee injury while goalkeeper Diego Penny this week left the club after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
