Match Preview

Pearson returns to the KC Swiss goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic is set to continue for high-flying Hull as they welcome former boss Nigel Pearson and his fifth-placed Leicester side to the KC Stadium on Boxing Day. Jakupovic made his Tigers debut in last Friday's 2-1 win at Derby following David Stockdale's return to Fulham and his performance delighted manager Steve Bruce. "I thought he was terrific. I said from the start that when you bring in a foreign player you've got to give them time. We're seeing that with Nick Proschwitz as well," said Bruce. "It's not been easy for Eldin. He's been in a dark place at times, but he did very well and I'm delighted for him." Abdoulaye Faye stepped in to replace the suspended Alex Bruce at Pride Park and will keep his place in Bruce's starting line-up after netting the second-half winner against Nigel Clough's Rams. Boss Bruce has no other selection issues and following an impressive run of four straight league wins is not expected to make any further changes to his promotion-chasing side. Martyn Waghorn is set to make his first start for Leicester since undergoing an appendix operation. The Foxes striker made his return from injury as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 home defeat to Cardiff on Saturday, but is now fit to start as Pearson plots a return to winning ways. City failed to score at home for the first time this season against the Bluebirds, meaning Pearson's side have now drawn blanks in their last two games, losing both. Waghorn scored two goals in five games before his injury, and could provide the solution for the East Midlands club, now without a win from their last three games. Defender Sean St Ledger and Michael Keane remain out with hamstring injuries, but Pearson has no new injury or suspension concerns. The promotion hopefuls are seven points behind the second-placed Tigers going into the game, and will take confidence from their 3-1 victory against Steve Bruce's men in September.
