Knockaert back in Foxes frame

Anthony Knockaert comes back into the reckoning for Leicester ahead of the visit of Millwall.

Knockaert missed last weekend's win at Ipswich as he served a one-match suspension for amassing five yellow cards but the French winger will be back in the squad against the Lions, who will be without Foxes striker Martyn Waghorn as he is ineligible under the terms of his loan.

Full-back Ritchie De Laet, who resumed training last week after a shin injury, is available to manager Nigel Pearson but fellow defender Sean St. Ledger (groin) and young striker Tom Hopper (shin) both face spells on the sidelines.

Matty James, Jeff Schlupp, Zoumana Bakayogo, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Ignasi Miquel and Chris Wood give Pearson plenty of options should the City boss wish to make any changes to his starting XI.

Millwall will be without Nicky Bailey and Martyn Waghorn.

Midfielder Bailey is suspended after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season against Barnsley last weekend and striker Waghorn cannot play as he is on loan from the Foxes.

Boss Steve Lomas also has a doubt over Liam Trotter, who missed the Barnsley win with a groin problem, but fellow midfielder Jimmy Abdou could return following a knee knock.

Striker Scott McDonald (hamstring) and defenders Scott Malone and Mark Beevers (both knee) came through unscathed last weekend following recent lay-offs and should be involved again.
