Captain Matt Oakley could return to the Leicester squad for the East Midlands clash against his former club Derby.

The midfielder has missed the last two matches with a knee problem, but has trained this week.

Portuguese defender Miguel Vitor was absent from training at the start of the week with a bruised knee, but could also come back into the reckoning after missing the visit of Sheffield United on Wednesday night.

Steve Howard staked his claim to start against his former club by rounding off an impressive performance from the bench with an injury-time equaliser from the penalty spot against the Blades.

Lloyd Dyer, Matty Fryatt and Franck Moussa are also available for recalls.

Derby defender Dean Leacock is available after suspension for the trip to East Midlands rivals Leicester.

Leacock served a one-match ban as the Rams recorded a third straight win and a fifth victory in six games at Ipswich in midweek.

Fellow centre-half Miles Addison has made his comeback from a long-term injury with substitute appearances against Portsmouth and Ipswich, but the 21-year-old is back on the sidelines for around six weeks after undergoing a routine operation to have screws removed from his foot.

With Stephen Bywater back in training and close to returning from a wrist injury, goalkeeper Frank Fielding is likely to play the last game of his loan spell before going back to Blackburn.

Strikers Alberto Bueno (ankle and Achilles) and Luke Moore (hamstring) could come back into the reckoning after missing the last two matches. Defender Russell Anderson (hamstring) is also closing in on a return.
