Leicester v Wolves preview

Leicester will continue to check on Anthony Knockaert as they prepare to resume npower Championship action against Wolves at the King Power Stadium.

Knockaert missed the FA Cup draw at Huddersfield on Saturday with an ankle injury and the French winger may not be ready in time for Thursday night's game.

"He's the only concern really," said City boss Nigel Pearson. "He's had a scan and we'll just have to see how he progresses. It doesn't give us much time, but we'll see how he is.

"We've managed the other minor knocks that we've had as best we can but, again, it's a case of just seeing how they are."

Chris Wood began on the bench at Huddersfield after suffering a knee injury in training prior to the fourth-round tie.

He came on to rescue a replay for Leicester with a late equaliser and the Kiwi striker could be restored to the starting line-up.

Wolves are without Roger Johnson for the trip to Leicester after his appeal against a three-match ban was turned down.

The centre-back was dismissed in injury time following an altercation with Blackpool's Angel Martinez during Wolves' 2-1 defeat on Saturday.

His appeal on the grounds of wrongful dismissal was thrown out by the Football Association on Tuesday and he will start his three-game suspension as Dean Saunders' side travel to the King Power Stadium.

Saunders is yet to taste victory since taking over at Molineux and he will be without Ronald Zubar after the French defender was released from his contract ahead of a move to Ligue 1 side Ajaccio.

Defender Stephen Ward is fit after pulling a muscle in his neck before kick-off at the weekend but Razak Boukari and Stephen Hunt remain sidelined, alongside Steven Mouyokolo, Wayne Hennessey and George Elokobi.
