Leicester V Doncaster at The King Power Stadium : Match Preview

Leicester V Doncaster - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


Duo missing for Foxes

Champions Leicester will be without Jamie Vardy and Matty James when they conclude their record-breaking Sky Bet Championship campaign against Doncaster at the King Power Stadium.


Vardy has missed the last two matches with a groin problem and the striker will remain on the sidelines, where he will be joined by midfielder James who this week had his appendix removed. However, Jeff Schlupp is fit again after a knee injury and the striker-turned-left-back will come back into contention for a place in the squad.


The Foxes have already amassed a club-record points total but manager Nigel Pearson is keen for his side to break the 100-points barrier - they go into Saturday's match on 99.


Leicester will be presented with the Championship trophy after the game.


Only long-term absentee Rob Jones will miss out for Doncaster when they head to the King Power Stadium looking to preserve their Championship status.


That means defenders Lucas Neill and James Husband (both hamstring), winger Mark Duffy and even Harry Forrester (knee), whose first season with Rovers has been plagued by a series of injury problems, are all fit again and in contention. Captain Richie Wellens (foot) returned to action last weekend as a second-half substitute against Reading.


Jones has not been involved since the end of October and the defender recently underwent a neck operation.


Victory will guarantee Doncaster's survival but Rovers will also stay up if they match Birmingham's result at Bolton.
