Oakley set for Foxes return
Leicester captain Matt Oakley should be added to the squad for the visit of Sheffield United on Wednesday night.
The veteran midfielder is back in full training after missing Saturday's win at Barnsley with a knee problem.
Portuguese defender Miguel Vitor, a goalscorer at Oakwell, missed training on Monday with a bruised knee but is expected to be fit.
Former England striker Darius Vassell lasted just over an hour on his City debut at the weekend and should be involved again.
Defender Aleksandar Tunchev is still sidelined but hopes to return to full training at the end of November after a serious knee injury.
The Foxes are unbeaten in their last three home matches.
Sheffield United boss Gary Speed could have loan duo Andy Reid and Stephen Jordan available.
The duo have been struggling with hamstring problems, and although Speed will not rush them back, he remains hopeful they will be fit.
He said: "They are in contention but we will wait unto Wednesday before making a decision. With the nature of their injuries it is important that the players themselves feel right in themselves.
"There is no point in rushing them back and then losing them straight away, particularly as there are three games this week, so changes will be inevitable anyway."
Forward Jamie Ward is rated "touch and go" to make the game after sustaining an ankle knock against Ipswich on Saturday.
Foxes grab late point
Mark Yeates went from hero to villain for Sheffield United as Leicester rescued a 2-2 draw in controversial fashion at the Walkers Stadium.
After Paul Gallagher had fired the Foxes into an early lead, Yeates popped up with two first-half goals of his own - the second a glorious 25-yard free-kick - to turn the match on its head.
United looked set to hold on for a valuable victory as a dogged defensive display kept the hosts at bay after the interval.
But Yeates was then penalised for handball in the area by referee Phil Gibbs - a decision the visitors strongly protested against - and substitute Steve Howard made no mistake from 12 yards to earn Leicester a share of the spoils.
The Blades remain 21st in the table as a result, while Leicester move up one place to 17th.
Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson made one enforced change to his starting line-up, with Jack Hobbs coming in for the injured Miguel Vitor.
Andy Reid made his first start for United in place of Jamie Ward, who was ruled out by an ankle problem, while Stephen Jordan replaced Johnny Ertl in defence.
Martyn Waghorn forced an early save from Blades goalkeeper Steve Simonsen at his near post before Leicester took the lead in the eighth minute.
Waghorn was brought down by Kyle Bartley on the edge of the box and Gallagher stepped up to curl the resulting free-kick across Simonsen and into the top-left corner.
A flowing move almost presented Leicester skipper Andy King with the opportunity to add a second nine minutes later, but Kyle Naughton's over-hit pass allowed Simonsen to gather at the midfielder's feet.
It took United until the 28th minute to register their first shot on goal as Yeates curled a tame effort into the arms of Chris Weale.
But seconds later, they were level as a quick break saw Leicester exposed at the back.
Reid and Yeates were left two-on-one against Hobbs and the on-loan Sunderland winger carried the ball into the area before squaring to leave his team-mate with a simple finish.
The goal lifted the visitors and they took a shock lead four minutes before the break as Yeates scored his second of the game.
Curtis Davies was adjudged to have fouled the former Middlesbrough midfielder 25 yards from goal and Yeates made him pay by finding the top-right corner with a wonderful curling free-kick.
Leicester were unable to threaten the Blades goal in the early stages of the second period and Eriksson responded by introducing Steve Howard and Lloyd Dyer in place of Waghorn and Darius Vassell.
A brief period of pressure followed from the home side, but Simonsen remained relatively untroubled in the United goal.
The former Stoke stopper was called into action in the 68th minute to keep out another Gallagher free-kick from just outside the area.
Yuki Abe and Howard then saw low shots saved by Simonsen and King hooked a hopeful effort wide as Leicester continued to press for an equaliser.
And they were finally rewarded in injury-time as Yeates was adjudged to have handled and Howard drilled his penalty into the bottom-left corner.
