Leicester V Hull - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
King boost for FoxesAndy King comes back into the reckoning for Leicester ahead of the visit of Hull on Sunday.King missed the midweek win over Burnley with the hamstring injury that forced him off after just 30 minutes of the defeat at Wolves.The Wales international midfielder has trained this week, though, giving Foxes manager Nigel Pearson an almost full-strength squad to choose from against his former employers.Defender Zak Whitbread is now fit and was on the bench against Burnley on Wednesday night, so only Ritchie Wellens remains unavailable and the 32-year-old midfielder is making good progress in his recovery from knee surgery.The likes of Neil Danns, Lloyd Dyer, Martyn Waghorn, Jermaine Beckford and Marko Futacs are options for Pearson should he wish to make changes to his starting XI.Hull midfielder Seyi Olofinjana is battling to shake off a hamstring injury.Olofinjana, who has started only two league games this season, missed the midweek win at Leeds after being forced out of the action against Millwall last Saturday.Corry Evans has stepped into midfield and will continue if the Nigerian fails to make it, although Paul McKenna returns to contention following his three-match ban.Striker Matty Fryatt remains sidelined with an Achilles problem, but is hoping to avoid surgery after having a series of injections and aims to return to full training next week.Defender Jack Hobbs and midfielder Tom Cairney remain sidelined with long-term knee injuries.Manager Steve Bruce has no other new injury or suspension worries and is unlikely to make any unforced changes as his side chase a fourth straight league win.
