The Foxes were thrashed 5-1 at Nottingham Forest on Saturday, a result that Pearson described afterwards as "awful" and the "worst performance" the side have put in since he arrived.

Dany N'Guessan, Nicky Adams and Lloyd Dyer are pushing for midfield berths while Pearson is also thought to be weighing up his attacking options.

However, he will definitely be without Stephen Clemence and Aleksandar Tunchev.

Clemence was back in training last week but is still not ready for a return while Tunchev is on crutches after an operation on his knee.
