Leicester v Leeds preview
Leicester hope to have Zak Whitbread and Ben Marshall back in contention when they begin their home Sky Bet Championship campaign against Leeds.
Defender Whitbread was carried off on a stretcher early on in the opening game of the season at Middlesbrough following a blow to the head while winger Marshall was ruled out of the midweek Capital One Cup win at Wycombe through illness.
Foxes boss Nigel Pearson was earlier this week optimistic about their chances of being involved on Sunday. Last season's leading scorer David Nugent is nearer full fitness and could start following 30 minutes as a substitute at Middlesbrough and an hour as a starter against Wycombe.
Leeds midfielder Rudy Austin, meanwhile, returns to contention at Leicester on Sunday after completing a suspension.
The Jamaica international has served a three-game ban that was carried over from last season following his dismissal against Brighton in the final home game and is hoping to feature.
Defender Stephen Warnock could also return after missing the midweek Capital One Cup win over Chesterfield due to a knock, while El-Hadji Diouf is closing in on his first appearance of the season after recovering from an infected shin.
Manager Brian McDermott made seven changes on Tuesday night and is expected to recall the likes of Ross McCormack, Luke Varney, Luke Murphy, Lee Peltier and Noel Hunt to his starting line-up.
