As you were for Foxes

Leicester have no new problems as they prepare to host Bolton.

Neil Danns is back with the Foxes following the end of his loan spell with Sunday's opponents and it remains to be seen whether the in-form midfielder will be involved against the club where he has just spent the past three months.

Strikers Chris Wood (hamstring) and Tom Hopper (shin) and defender Sean St. Ledger (groin) have been absent recently and they are likely to continue on the sidelines.

Manager Nigel Pearson named an unchanged starting line-up against Reading on Boxing Day and, as well as Danns, has the likes of Dean Hammond, Andy King, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Ignasi Miquel, Marcin Wasilewski, Martyn Waghorn and Jeff Schlupp to call on should he wish to make any changes.

Bolton will be without Kevin McNaughton and Danns.

Both players' loan deals have expired, with Cardiff and Leicester respectively, and boss Dougie Freedman will need to make changes as his side look to secure back-to-back wins on the road for the second time this season.

Matt Mills, Chu-Young Lee, Medo and Andre Moritz are all pushing for recalls and may be considered as replacements while Mark Davies will also come into consideration having made significant advances in his return from a long-term knee injury.

Stuart Holden, Joe Riley and Adam Bogdan (all knee) are unavailable and full-back Marc Tierney remains doubtful as he struggles to overcome a foot injury.
