De Laet boost for Foxes

Ritchie De Laet is expected to be fit to give Leicester an unchanged squad for the visit of Yeovil.

De Laet is nursing a knock sustained during the 1-1 draw at Blackburn on Saturday but the right-back should recover and be in the squad against the Glovers on Tuesday night.

The likes of Dean Hammond, Andy King, Liam Moore, Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Kevin Phillips and Chris Wood all began on the bench at Ewood Park and are options should manager Nigel Pearson feel the need to make any changes to his starting line-up.

Defender Sean St. Ledger (knee) and young striker Tom Hopper (shin) continue their recoveries from long-term injury.

Yeovil will assess the fitness of midfielder Ruben Palazuelos ahead of the trip.

The Spaniard sustained a hamstring injury in the warm up at Wigan which saw him miss that 3-3 draw and Saturday's clash with Bolton but he is close to a return and could boost Gary Johnson's options.

If Palazuelos fails to make it then Johnson could name an unchanged side with Kevin Dawson and Kieffer Moore hoping they have done enough having replaced Joel Grant and Matteo Lanzoni at Huish Park.

Ishmael Miller looks certain to start up front despite his late penalty miss against the Trotters which denied the Nottingham Forest loanee what would have been his 11th goal in 18 starts for the Glovers.
