The midfielder returned from suspension in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe but he was forced to settle for a place among the substitutes.

He is now hoping for a recall as the Foxes seek to record their first win at the City Ground since January 1972.

However, defender Aleksandar Tunchev is still some way off a first-team return as he is still on crutches after an operation to clean out a knee joint.

The Bulgarian had returned from cruciate ligament damage inflicted at Crystal Palace nearly a year ago, but then suffered a setback this season.

Stephen Clemence has returned to training with the squad this week, but is not ready for a first-team recall.
