Konchesky in Foxes frame

Paul Konchesky comes back into the reckoning for Leicester when the Sky Bet Championship leaders host free-falling Blackpool at the King Power Stadium.

Konchesky has missed the last three matches through suspension but he may struggle to depose Jeff Schlupp at left-back, with the youngster helping the Foxes keep three straight clean sheets in three successive 3-0 wins in the former England international's absence.

Lloyd Dyer could also be back in contention after an Achilles problem saw him sit out the victories against Barnsley and Charlton. Riyad Mahrez has performed well in his absence and the Frenchman could retain his place if Dyer suffers a reaction in training this week.

Sean St Ledger (groin) and young striker Tom Hopper (shin) remain on the sidelines.

Jack Robinson and Andy Keogh will be back in Blackpool's squad.

Full-back Robinson returns having served a three-match suspension for his third red card of the season while fellow loanee Keogh is available again after being ineligible to face parent club Millwall in midweek.

One player caretaker-manager Barry Ferguson will be without is full-back Kevin Foley, who missed out in midweek because of a dislocated shoulder. Although he has returned to training, this contest will likely be a game too soon.

Tom Barkhuizen recently returned to training following a broken collarbone and is unlikely to be ready to join a squad who ended a 101-day wait for a victory on Tuesday.
