Waghorn back in Foxes frame

The only change to the Leicester squad for the visit of Reading will see Martyn Waghorn added to manager Nigel Pearson's options.

Waghorn is back in the Foxes' ranks after the striker returned from his loan spell at Championship rivals Millwall.

There are no new injury or suspension problems following the 1-0 victory over QPR, so strikers Chris Wood (hamstring) and Tom Hopper (shin) and defender Sean St. Ledger (groin) continue on the sidelines.

Defenders Ignasi Miquel and Marcin Wasilewski, midfielders Dean Hammond and Andy King and strikers Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Jeff Schlupp all started on the bench at Loftus Road on Saturday and are options should Pearson wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.

Reading have no new injury concerns.

But boss Nigel Adkins is short on options should he wish to make changes following Saturday's 2-1 home defeat by Wigan.

Midfielder Chris Baird hopes to overcome a sprained ankle but the Royals still have a host of players in the treatment room.

Defenders Wayne Bridge and Sean Morrison (both knee), midfielders Jem Karacan (cruciate) and Mikele Leigertwood (ankle) and striker Jason Roberts (hip) are all still on the sidelines.
