Sven set for bow
Sven-Goran Eriksson will begin his reign as Leicester manager against former Foxes boss Nigel Pearson when Hull visit the Walkers Stadium.
Kyle Naughton became the Swede's first signing and the on-loan Tottenham full-back goes straight into the squad.
However, Eriksson will be without Dany N'Guessan after the forward suffered ankle ligament damage during the club's mid-season trip to Thailand last week.
Defenders Michael Morrison and Miguel Vitor and midfielder Lloyd Dyer also sustained knocks in the Far East but are expected to be fit.
Assistant manager Derek Fazackerley believes Eriksson's wealth of footballing know-how will outweigh Pearson's inside knowledge of the Leicester players.
"Nigel Pearson will have a better insight than us into the players, that is just one of the quirks of the game," said Fazackerley. "But Sven has great credentials - you have only to look at his CV, it is second to none. It is a massive coup for the club to get Sven."
Hull midfielder Jimmy Bullard is doubtful for the clash.
Bullard is struggling with a knee injury and could face a late fitness test as Pearson returns to the Walkers Stadium for the first time since leaving to become Phil Brown's permanent successor in the summer.
John Bostock and Kevin Kilbane, both unused substitutes in the goalless draw with Coventry last time out, could come into contention for a start if Bullard fails to make it.
Bullard's absence could be tempered by the return to the squad of striker Caleb Folan.
Folan has yet to appear for Hull this season due to complications with a dead leg, while summer signing James Harper (foot), still waiting for his first appearance for the club, will travel with the squad, but is not expected to feature.
Eriksson starts with a draw
Sven-Goran Eriksson could not out-fox former Leicester manager Nigel Pearson as the Swede's first game in charge ended in a 1-1 draw against Hull.
Andy King got the Eriksson era off to a flying start by scoring after just three minutes but Robert Koren equalised in the 52nd minute to ensure a satisfactory return to the Walkers Stadium for Pearson, who left the Midlands club in the summer.
King squeezed the ball in from a tight angle as Matt Duke got hands on the shot but could only palm it into the net.
King came close again after 15 minutes when he curled an effort wide and the Wales international had a goalbound shot blocked by Anthony Gerrard midway through the first half.
Eriksson's side continued to look dangerous and Bruno Berner sent a shot across the face of goal just before half-time.
Hull were abject in the first half and provided no threat but they drew level seven minutes after the break.
Koren unleashed a shot from 30 yards that Chris Weale could only palm into the net. The Leicester keeper should really have done better.
Neither side were content to sit back and take a point, and both tried to win it in the time remaining.
Jack Hobbs headed straight at Duke on the hour mark, while at the other end Rowan Vine and Mark Cullen missed the target.
Hobbs almost got on the end of Franck Moussa's corner midway through the second half before Weale was forced to save Caleb Folan's header.
The end-to-end action continued and Paul Gallacher wasted a golden chance to earn Leicester all three points when he blazed over the crossbar from eight yards out.
Substitute Kevin Kilbane then nearly won it for Hull with his first touch but his header was smothered by Weale.
Weale was forced into action again with 10 minutes left to keep out Nick Barmby's volley.
Hull had the final attempt but Andy Dawson's free-kick in the first minute of injury time cleared the crossbar.
