Darius Vassell is expected to be fit in time for Leicester's clash with their Midlands rivals.
The former Aston Villa and Manchester City striker, who was on the bench against Cardiff on Tuesday night due to a tight hamstring, has been ill this week.
Fellow forward Steve Howard is manager Sven-Goran Eriksson's only other injury problem. Howard has missed the last three matches with an ankle knock and will remain on the sidelines.
Eriksson has options should he wish to make changes with defenders Bruno Berner and Miguel Vitor, midfielders Matt Oakley and Yuki Abe and striker Martyn Waghorn available for recalls.
Leicester have yet to lose a league game at the Walkers Stadium since Eriksson took charge in October.
Clive Platt is expected to return to contention for Coventry.
The striker picked up a knock which ruled him out of Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Swansea, although he is likely to make a speedy recovery to stake his claim for a starting berth at the Walkers Stadium.
Midfielder Sammy Clingan made his comeback as an unused substitute against the Swans and will feature again.
Manager Aidy Boothroyd will continue to assess skipper Lee Carsley (Achilles and hernia surgery) and influential centre-back Ben Turner (knee).
The Sky Blues sustained no new injury problems in midweek, with the likes of winger Gary McSheffrey and striker Freddy Eastwood pushing to start against the Foxes having been relegated to the bench in recent games.
