Foxes missing Mills
Leicester captain Matt Mills is suspended for the visit of Peterborough.
Mills was sent off for the second time this season during the 2-1 defeat at Hull last weekend and will begin a two-match ban, having previously seen red during the loss at Birmingham in October.
Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger is likely to replace Mills and partner Sol Bamba at the heart of the City defence, although Aleksandar Tunchev is also an option for manager Nigel Pearson.
Tunchev has been out with a groin injury since returning from a loan spell at Crystal Palace - the Bulgarian's first sustained period of first-team football since making his comeback from a long-term knee injury in the spring.
He has trained successfully for a week, though, and, having featured in a reserve-team match, could challenge St Ledger for a starting role.
Peterborough have problems at left-back.
Current incumbent Tom Kennedy is ineligible as he is on loan from the Foxes, while Mark Little, who he replaced, will be out until mid-January having underwent surgery on a groin injury this week.
Craig Alcock, who has spent much of the season on the left-hand side of the defence, is likely to stay at right-back after midfielder Tommy Rowe was outstanding in the final half-hour against Barnsley last weekend when he switched to left-back.
Rowe will probably remain in the position, although manager Darren Ferguson admits he is also weighing up a surprise selection.
"It is very likely Tommy Rowe will play there. I've been pleased with Tommy's last two performances, but Nathan Ralph and Kgosi Ntlhe are two young players who could do a job for us at left-back as well," said Ferguson, who confirmed Joe Lewis will remain in goal despite conceding four times on his return to the first-team against Barnsley after seven months out with a knee injury.
"Kgosi came back from injury to play in the FA Youth Cup in midweek so it might be too soon for him, but it's possible Nathan could be involved."
Tomlin tames Foxes
Leicester drew at home for the first time in the npower Championship this season after Peterborough hit back to ensure a 1-1 final scoreline at the King Power Stadium.
Paul Gallacher marked his recall to the Leicester team with the opening goal after 56 minutes, but Lee Tomlin brought the visitors level in the 71st minute.
With captain Matt Mills suspended following his red card in the defeat at Hull last weekend, Republic of Ireland international Sean St Ledger was recalled to partner Sol Bamba at the heart of the Leicester defence.
And manager Nigel Pearson made a second change, with Gallacher replacing Neil Danns in midfield.
On-loan full-back Tom Kennedy was ineligible for Peterborough against his parent club so a defensive reshuffle saw Tommy Rowe fill in at left-back as Lee Frecklington was recalled in midfield in the only change for Posh.
Leicester dominated early on and might have taken the lead through headed efforts from Jermaine Beckford and Bamba, but both players missed the target from six yards out when it seemed easier to do better.
Joe Lewis, recalled in goal last week following seven months out with a knee injury, kept his place despite Peterborough conceding four goals in the defeat to Barnsley last weekend. He fumbled a long-range shot from Lloyd Dyer after 15 minutes, though, giving Leicester some hope.
Beckford was unlucky to see a shot from the edge of the area strike a post seven minutes before half-time.
Home stopper Kasper Schmeichel was called into action at the start of the second half to block a volley from Emile Sinclair.
Leicester then deservedly went ahead after 56 minutes.
Gallacher took a short corner to David Nugent, whose attempted cross ricocheted back into the path of the Scot and he drilled a right-foot shot past Lewis at the near post.
Peterborough improved after that and got themselves level midway through the second half.
Sinclair used his pace to get free down the right-hand side and his cross was headed home by Lee Tomlin diving into the six-yard box.
Beckford had a chance to restore Leicester`s lead soon afterwards but the former Everton and Leeds striker shot over the crossbar when again it looked simpler to hit the target.
At the other end, Lewis did well to handle a fiercely-struck shot from Lee Peltier with 10 minutes remaining, but neither side was able to create a decent enough chance to win the game.
