The Foxes are at full strength apart from midfielder Stephen Clemence, who remains on the sidelines after snapping his Achilles in March of last year.

Striker Martyn Waghorn is pushing for a recall but could be restricted to bench duty as Pearson is expected to keep faith with Steve Howard and Matty Fryatt, who notched his 50th goal for the club in their 2-1 victory over Blackpool.

Pearson's side are searching for a fourth consecutive victory at the Walkers Stadium, where they have not lost since September 2008.

Leicester were cheered on by 23,000 supporters against the Seasiders - the third largest crowd in the division on the day - and Pearson has paid tribute to the club's loyal followers.

"Your support, both in terms of turning up in numbers and backing the team, has made a real difference," he told the club's official website.
