Match Preview

Guthrie doubt for Foxes clash Danny Guthrie is Reading's latest injury worry ahead of Monday's clash with Leicester. Guthrie is awaiting the results of a scan on the calf problem he suffered in the warm-up prior to Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at Bournemouth amid fears he could miss the rest of the season. Guthrie's midfield partner Danny Williams is also set to miss out with a knee injury while Hope Akpan, Garath McCleary and Michael Hector have all been carrying knocks. But Mikele Leigertwood made his first appearance in a year as a substitute against the Cherries following a long-term ankle injury and should be involved again. Leicester boss Nigel Pearson could freshen things up as the Foxes look for a return to winning ways. City's 21-match unbeaten league run came to an end on Tuesday when they slumped to a 4-1 defeat against play-off chasers Brighton and Pearson has plenty of options should he wish to make changes. Striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher came off the bench to score against the Seagulls and will be hoping he has done enough to earn a recall to the starting XI. Pearson, whose side clinched promotion to the Barclays Premier League last weekend, will monitor forward Jamie Vardy, who has missed the last three matches with a groin injury.
