Duo braced for debuts

Tom Kennedy and Leon Crncic could make their Leicester debuts against Crystal Palace. However, fellow summer signing Miguel Vitor is a doubt for the opening game of the Championship season. Paul Gallacher missed four of City`s six pre-season matches with a thigh injury but boss Paulo Sousa is hopeful the forward will be able to play some part at Selhurst Park. Long-term absentee Aleksandar Tunchev remains the only player definitely out as he continues to struggle with a persistent knee problem. Sousa, who left Swansea to replace Nigel Pearson at the Walkers Stadium a month ago, said: "I am very excited with a lot of confidence. It is very present in my mind to have a winning mentality. "I am very positive about everything that we have done and what I have seen in four weeks. The team and players are progressing."
