Bruma banned for Foxes
Jeffrey Bruma will be absent through suspension when Leicester host Burnley.
The on-loan Chelsea centre-half was sent off during the 3-3 draw against Middlesbrough last weekend and must serve a one-match ban.
Fellow defender Kyle Naughton is a doubt due to illness but boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is hopeful he will train on Friday.
However, Ben Mee could ease any defensive worries as he is fit again after missing out at the Riverside with a knock.
Striker Martyn Waghorn was this week ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a hamstring strain in training.
Eriksson has options should he wish to make changes, with top scorer Andy King, fellow midfielders Yuki Abe and Lloyd Dyer, defender Miguel Vitor and striker Steve Howard all available for recalls.
Burnley boss Eddie Howe could be boosted by the return of Jack Cork.
The on-loan Chelsea midfielder, 21, returned to Stamford Bridge to undergo medical tests after suffering heart palpitations while on England Under-21 duty last Monday.
Cork subsequently missed last Saturday`s 2-1 home defeat to Ipswich but may be given the green light to return to action at the Walkers Stadium although left-back Daniel Fox is suspended.
Strikers Charlie Austin, Steven Thompson and Martin Paterson, along with midfielder Chris McCann remain sidelined through injury.
Austin and Paterson may not play again this term but Thompson and McCann are working towards match fitness as the Clarets bid to reignite their promotion bid.
Howe's men have lost three of their last four games and goalkeeper Brian Jensen is pushing for a recall at the expense of Lee Grant.
Foxes fire four past Clarets
Paul Gallagher took his tally for the season to 11 goals with a brace as Leicester moved above opponents Burnley and kept alive their slim play-off hopes in fine style with a 4-0 win.
Diomansy Kamara starred on his home debut, opening the scoring in the 23rd minute and winning the penalty from which Gallagher made it 2-0.
The Scot made it three with a stunning long-range strike and Patrick Van Aanholt made it four to secure the Foxes a second win in eight matches and move them into the top 10 in the npower Championship table.
Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson was forced to reshuffle his defence, with Jeffrey Bruma suspended and Kyle Naughton missing out through illness.
Miguel Vitor and Ben Mee came in at the back, with Andy King returning to the centre of midfield.
Burnley made four changes from the side beaten 2-1 at home by Ipswich last time out, with Brian Jensen, Wade Elliott, Chris Iwelumo and Michael Duff all starting.
Kamara was inches away from connecting with a Gallagher cross after just two minutes.
At the other end, Nathan Delfouneso tried his luck with a shot from 25 yards which took a deflection that had Foxes goalkeeper Chris Weale scrambling.
The lively Kamara sent a header over the crossbar from a Van Aanholt cross shortly before the on-loan forward did open the scoring.
Richie Wellens played a neat pass through for Ayegbeni Yakubu who turned Duff superbly and was shaping to shoot, only for Kamara to nick the ball off his foot and drill home.
Kamara was a constant menace, and Jay Rodriguez was booked for bringing him down with a reckless challenge.
The Clarets started the second half brightly, with Mears somehow clearing the crossbar after Weale had spilled a Delfouneso cross.
But it was the home side who extended their advantage in the 51st minute when Kamara was brought down by Andre Bikey in the box and Paul Gallagher smashed home the penalty off the body of Jensen.
Wellens sent Yakubu clear from the Foxes` next attack but he failed to get his shot off as Duff put in a superb challenge.
It was all Leicester, and they added a third after 71 minutes. Gallagher picked up the ball in acres of space and raced forward before unleashing an unstoppable 25-yard drive into the bottom corner.
Van Aanholt scored his first-ever league goal for City to make it 4-0 with nine minutes remaining. The Dutchman exchanged passes with King before curling the ball past Jensen.
There was still time for Wellens to slam a shot against the crossbar and Jensen to deny Gallagher a hat-trick with a fine diving stop as the rampant Foxes finished strongly.
