In-form Foxes unchanged

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson will have an unchanged squad when his Sky Bet Championship leaders host struggling Charlton.

Pearson, who saw his team extend their unbeaten run to 13 league matches and maintain an eight-point advantage over second-placed Burnley with last weekend's 3-0 home win against Ipswich, has plenty of options should he wish to freshen up his starting line-up.

Midfielders Dean Hammond, Andy King and Riyad Mahrez, defender Liam Moore and strikers Kevin Phillips and Chris Wood are among those players vying for starting roles.

Left-back Paul Konchesky will serve the second game of a three-match suspension for his red card against Nottingham Forest, while the only other absentees are the injured Sean St Ledger (groin) and Tom Hopper (shin).

Charlton boss Chris Powell could recall Rhoys Wiggins for the trip.

Left-back Wiggins was rested for Monday night's FA Cup win at Sheffield Wednesday having only recently returned from a hamstring injury.

Powell also has a decision to make in goal after regular number one Ben Hamer returned from an ankle injury at Hillsborough to take over from January signing Yohann Thuram-Ulien.

Knee injury-victims Chris Solly and Leon Cort remain on the sidelines although the latter could be back in training next week.
