Match Preview

Duo missing for Foxes Curtis Davies and captain Matt Oakley will miss Leicester`s Carling Cup fourth-round tie against midlands rivals West Brom. Defender Davies limped off with a hamstring strain midway through the second half of the Championship defeat at Swansea on Saturday. It is hoped the centre-half, on loan from Aston Villa, will not be out for long and he could even come back into the reckoning for the league visit of Preston at the weekend. Oakley, however, could be set for a month on the sidelines after the midfielder suffered a thigh strain against the Swans. Michael Morrison is likely to replace Davies while Julio Moreno, Yuki Abe and Paul Gallacher, should he recover from the back problem that ruled him out of the trip to south Wales, are Sven-Goran Eriksson`s options to replace Oakley. West Brom head coach Roberto Di Matteo insists his players will not get carried away with their flying start to the Barclays Premier League. Albion will take a break from league action on Tuesday when they visit Leicester. They will be defending a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions stretching back two months to the end of August, when they were beaten at Liverpool. Since then the Baggies have won at Arsenal and drawn away to Manchester United, and for 24 hours were lying in fourth spot after defeating Fulham 2-1 at The Hawthorns. But Di Matteo has his feet firmly on the ground ahead of the clash with Sven-Goran Eriksson's side at the Walkers Stadium. He said: "People joked about where we were in the table on Saturday, that we were in the final Champions League spot. "But we have to keep our feet on the ground. I do it and we have to remind the players about it. "The fans and the media can get excited if they want to. But we will carry on with our work and now prepare for the cup tie. "We know we can still improve and the areas in which we can do better. "The players put the effort in and are committed and confident but we must not get carried away." Di Matteo, who is set to make changes against the Foxes, admitted: "What has happened so far this season is beyond my expectations. "But we deserve the points we have on the board in the Premier League with the way we are playing. "I've no idea if we can keep it going and we will see at the end of the season where we stand. "There is no secret formula. It's down to hard work and we try and play football and believe that is the way to win games." Albion are set to be without central defender Jonas Olsson and striker Marc-Antoine Fortune, who were both injured against Fulham. Olsson had to be substituted after 55 minutes with an Achilles problem and Fortune at the same juncture with an injury. Fortune has been deputising for four-goal leading scorer Peter Odemwingie, who has missed the last two games with a knee setback. But Di Matteo will resist the temptation to rush the Nigerian international back into action. He said: "We want Peter back as soon as possible but we don't want to rush him back and then lose him for a long time. "We want him to be back in training this week. That is our aim but we will know more later this week."

Match Report

Logan error foils Foxes Leicester 1 West Brom 4 Leicester goalkeeper Conrad Logan gifted West Brom a place in Saturday's Carling Cup quarter-final draw with a clanger that swung the game firmly in the visitors' direction as they triumphed 4-1. The Foxes number 13 was under no pressure when he went to collect Gianni Zuiverloon's over-hit long ball but, having seemingly caught it, he failed to hold on and presented Somen Tchoyi with the simplest of finishes reminiscent of his recent strike at Old Trafford courtesy of Edwin van der Sar's mistake. The goal put Albion back in command at a crucial period in the tie just after the hour mark when Nicky Shorey's own goal had cancelled out Simon Cox's composed finish from the first half to level things up. Steven Reid ended the tie as a contest 11 minutes from time before Cox grabbed a stunning second to book the Baggies' place in the last eight for the first time in seven years. Despite their exit, the result at least leaves Foxes boss Sven-Goran Eriksson to focus on the club's number one ambition this season - promotion to the Barclays Premier League. West Brom counterpart Roberto Di Matteo changed his entire XI from Saturday's 2-1 win over Fulham. Reid was handed the captain's armband upon his return, with the likes of Cox, Roman Bednar, Graham Dorrans and Giles Barnes coming back in. Ishmael Miller, a loan target for Eriksson, was named on the bench on his comeback from injury. Eriksson himself changed eight players from the weekend's 2-0 defeat at Swansea - his first loss as Leicester boss - with a handful of loan players cup-tied. Albion fans took obvious delight at the arrival of former striker and boyhood Baggies fan Lee Hughes in the visiting stand they occupied. And he would have watched a pretty ordinary opening quarter littered with mis-placed passes and the surrender of possession as 19 incoming players looked to get a feel of the game. Foxes midfielder Paul Gallagher enjoyed the first effort of the encounter in the 13th minute and was not too far away with his low drive from 25 yards. The hosts were providing the greater attacking threat early on but it was Albion who broke the deadlock with their first real attack in the 21st minute. Left winger Barnes beat Bruno Berner for the first time and crossed to the back post where Tchoyi found Bednar, who in turn saw his shot deflected into the path of Cox, who produced an exquisite dink over Logan. Lloyd Dyer and Gallagher were looking the most threatening players for the npower Championship side and it was the latter who almost levelled matters with a free-kick which had Boaz Myhill scrambling across his goal. Baggies midfielder Tchoyi then curled an effort wide before Logan saved Leicester from going two down shortly before the interval when his outstretched arm tipped Bednar's looping header wide. West Brom could and should have been two goals to the good within minutes of the restart and Tchoyi's inch-perfect throughball deserved better from Dorrans who seemed to get caught in two minds and aimed a weak, bobbling shot come cross towards the far post. The top-flight outfit were made to pay with 53 minutes on the clock when, amid a spell of home pressure, the ball was recycled to Gallagher in acres of space on the right and his cross was deflected into his own net by half-time substitute Shorey at the near post. Chances came at either end before Albion regained the lead in the most fortuitous of circumstances just after the hour mark. Zuiverloon's long ball from right-back looked to be a simple catch for keeper Logan but he made the biggest of clangers to present Tchoyi with the simplest of finishes. Logan went some way to redeeming himself with an impressive save from Shorey's free-kick and Barnes' low shot. But Reid wrapped the game up as a contest in the 79th minute when he rose unmarked at the far post to head Barnes' corner into the roof of the net. And it was left for Cox to round off the scoring with a superb long-range strike into the top corner which left Logan with no chance in the final minute.
