Matty Fryatt is expected to return from injury when Leicester host Reading.
The striker missed the games at Burnley and Leeds due to an Achilles problem but he resumed training on Thursday.
Fellow forward DJ Campbell should also be available after illness ruled him out of the Carling Cup win at Elland Road on Tuesday night. Lloyd Dyer could also return.
Boss Paulo Sousa will check on Chris Weale after a shoulder injury sustained at Burnley saw him miss out in midweek.
However, the goalkeeper is likely to remain sidelined so Carl Ikeme, signed on loan from Wolves, will challenge Conrad Logan for the starting spot.
Sousa may adopt the more traditional 4-4-2 system against Reading after his tactical change at half-time against Leeds, which included the introduction of Andy King, turned the game in City's favour.
