Match Preview

Pearson to make late De Laet decision Defender Ritchie De Laet is boss Nigel Pearson's only injury concern as Leicester go in search of a fifth consecutive npower Championship win at home to Bristol City. The full-back limped off after just 28 minutes of the 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough last weekend and will be tested prior to kick-off to assess his availability. Highly-rated teenager Liam Moore has stepped in impressively in De Laet's absence and is likely to get the nod once again should the former Manchester United trainee be ruled out. Moore was one of three changes made by Pearson in the 2-0 victory at Huddersfield on Tuesday, with Andy King and Lloyd Dyer also included in the starting line-up. Matty James and Ben Marshall were the unlucky duo to miss out but Pearson is expected to name an unchanged side as the Foxes seek to continue their 100 per cent home record. Successive wins on the road have lifted Pearson's men to second in the table, just a point behind leaders Cardiff. Bristol City are without Marvin Elliott and Joe Bryan. Elliott has missed the last two games with a groin injury and remains sidelined. Bryan has still not been cleared to play after the 19-year-old defender suffered a concussion within 20 minutes of replacing George Elokobi in the 3-2 defeat against Leeds before missing the 1-1 draw with Millwall in midweek. Lewin Nyatanga made his first league appearance of the season against the Lions in Bryan's absence and is expected to continue on the left-side of the defence. First-choice left-back Greg Cunningham is not expected back from an ankle injury until next month. Steve Davies celebrated his full debut for the club by scoring in midweek and should continue in midfield.
