They took a point in a 0-0 draw at the Walkers Stadium back in October
"It is a big game, and I really do fancy us against anyone at Pride Park," Barker told his club's official website.
"We did well against Leicester back in October and we were solid against them down there. Leicester are a good side and it will be a tough test for us as they are in the promotion mix.
"Fingers crossed we can get the win and three points we have needed in recent weeks.If we get the win it will give us some breathing space; they would be welcomed with open arms."
