Match Preview

Defensive headache for Foxes Injury and suspension has limited Leicester manager Nigel Pearson's defensive options ahead of the npower Championship opener against Peterborough at the King Power Stadium. Sean St Ledger and Tom Parkes missed the Capital One Cup tie at Torquay on Tuesday night and will again be missing. St Ledger has been ruled out with a knee injury while Parkes is serving a four-match ban carried over from last season for a red card he received while on loan at Bristol Rovers and the 20-year-old must miss one more game. Teenager Liam Moore, who has been partnering captain Wes Morgan at the heart of the Leicester defence, may have suffered a fractured cheekbone during the cup win against Torquay and the club are waiting for results of a scan. Meanwhile, Pearson has said he will not rush summer signing Zak Whitbread into action until he is convinced the American is fully fit. Whitbread did not feature in any of the Foxes' pre-season friendly matches following his arrival on a free transfer from Norwich. Tyrone Barnett and Emile Sinclair have been declared fit by Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson. Barnett, who completed his permanent #1million-plus move to London Road from Crawley during the close season, missed the Capital One Cup win over Southend with a hamstring problem while fellow striker Sinclair has recovered after undergoing a minor ankle operation over the summer. Both may struggle to find their way into Ferguson's starting line-up after a three-pronged attack of Lee Tomlin, George Boyd and Paul Taylor all got themselves on the scoresheet in the 4-0 cup win on Tuesday night. Summer signing Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (hamstring), Daniel Kearns (knee), Tommy Rowe (collar bone) and long-term injury victim David Hibbert remain out.
