Match Preview

Vassell may make Foxes squad Darius Vassell could be ready to make his Leicester debut against Preston at the Walkers Stadium. A lack of match fitness has kept the former England striker out of the picture since he joined the club 10 days ago. Vassell has not played a competitive match since leaving Turkish side Ankaragucu in May. He could make his bow this weekend, with a place on the bench the most likely scenario. Fellow striker Martyn Waghorn and defenders Greg Cunningham and Kyle Naughton return to contention after being cup-tied for the visit of West Brom in midweek. Forward Dany N`Guessan could also come back into the reckoning after almost a month out with an ankle injury. On-loan defender Curtis Davies (hamstring) and midfielder Matt Oakley (thigh) remain sidelined. Meanwhile, defender Aleksandar Tunchev is on course to return to full training at the end of November after making good progress in his comeback from a serious knee injury. Preston manager Darren Ferguson will still have Iain Hume at his disposal for the trip. Hume will stay with North End for the full 93 days of his emergency loan after agreeing a deal with his parent club Barnsley who have secured the services of striker Paul Hayes in return. Barry Nicholson returned to reserve duty in midweek after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a broken leg but the game at the Walkers Stadium is thought to come too soon for the midfielder. Josh King could return if he recovers from a twisted ankle while Wayne Brown and Matt James are likely to keep their places after returning to the starting line-up following injuries. Paul Parry impressed in the reserves and is pushing for a start against the Foxes.

Match Report

Foxes grind out win Leicester claimed a narrow 1-0 victory over fellow strugglers Preston in a forgettable npower Championship clash at the Walkers Stadium. An entertaining opening quarter with plenty of goalscoring chances was as good as it got for the 21,212 in attendance as the encounter descended into a lacklustre affair. If one team deserved to take the spoils though it was Leicester and they did so courtesy of Paul Gallagher's well-taken 36th-minute finish, the midfielder proving the difference against the team he spent four months on loan with in 2007. It never promised to be a classic between two sides struggling at the wrong end of the table and with the two worst defensive records in the second tier. And, crucially, it was Leicester who had their first clean sheet in 15 games to thank for all three points, although former centre-back Wayne Brown almost snatched a point for North End when his injury-time header drifted just inches wide. Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson made seven changes to the side which started Tuesday`s 4-1 Carling Cup defeat to West Brom, reverting to his strongest line-up. Darren Ferguson, in contrast, made just one switch from the line-up which saw off Crystal Palace 4-3 last weekend, Adam Barton coming in for the suspended Jon Parkin. And it was the 19-year-old midfielder who should have broken the deadlock with just 25 seconds on the clock but he could only curl wide from 12 yards. But he was not the only guilty party as the opening 20 minutes somehow passed by goalless. Matchwinner Gallagher saw his blistering 30-yard drive tipped over by Andy Lonergan before Martyn Waghorn sliced wide for the hosts when in a really good position. Barton then had another opportunity to open the scoring but saw his header pushed for a corner by Chris Weale, who should have been made to work harder. Yet, as entertaining as the first quarter was, the following 15 minutes were beyond pedestrian - with North End almost completely stepping off the gas. And it was Gallagher`s perfectly-timed strike which woke the home fans from their slumber, the former Blackburn man receiving a neat pass from Yuki Abe before finding the bottom corner with a left-footed strike from 12 yards. Leicester goalkeeper Weale did his best to hand North End an equaliser at the end of the first half with a sliced clearance which fell to Barton, who saw his goalbound effort blocked. The second half continued in dull fashion and failed to get any better. Preston defender Brown was booed at every opportunity on his return to the Walkers Stadium following his summer exit by mutual consent after a training ground bust-up, and his 67th-minute booking was no exception. But a complete lack of goalmouth action after the break, with not one single chance of note, meant the final whistle could not come quick enough. Yet it was Brown who came within a whisker of providing a dramatic conclusion when his 94th-minute header drifted just wide.
