Millwall will be without first-choice centre-halves Paul Robinson and Dan Shittu for the visit of the Foxes.

Skipper Robinson and his defensive partner Shittu missed the Boxing Day draw at Portsmouth with hamstring injuries and will not be ready in time to face the Foxes, so Darren Ward and Tony Craig continue at the back.

Lions stalwart Neil Harris was also missing at Fratton Park with a back injury and is set to sit out again, but fellow striker Kevin Lisbie is expected to be added to the bench after shaking off a knee problem.

Boss Kenny Jackett reported no new injuries following the 1-1 draw on the south coast and could name an unchanged starting XI.

On-loan striker Roman Bednar could return to the Leicester line-up for the trip to the Lions.

Bednar was fit enough for the bench on Boxing Day and came on to play almost half an hour against Leeds after recovering from a knock.

Fellow forward Martyn Waghorn and midfielders Matt Oakley, Franck Moussa and Lloyd Dyer could also come into the frame for starts should boss Sven-Goran Eriksson feel the need to make changes.

Miguel Vitor missed the 2-2 draw against Leeds with a groin strain but the defender is another option for Eriksson should he recover.

Midfielder Yuki Abe remains available after he was left out of the Japan squad for next month's Asia Cup tournament in Qatar.
