Leicester have no new injury problems ahead of the game.

On-loan Chelsea defender Patrick van Aanholt and veteran striker Steve Howard remain the only absentees with thigh and ankle injuries respectively.

Ben Mee was given the nod to replace van Aanholt against QPR on Saturday and after impressing against the league leaders there is every chance he could retain his place at left-back, although Bruno Berner is another option for manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Paul Gallacher, Lloyd Dyer and Martyn Waghorn will be hoping for recalls after coming off the bench at Loftus Road.

The Foxes have slipped five points off the play-off places after three matches, including two defeats, without a win.

Norwich have a doubt over defender Zak Whitbread ahead of the trip.

The American centre-half had to be replaced during Saturday's draw with Preston after injuring his back in a heavy fall and manager Paul Lambert has described him as 'touch and go' for the trip to take on Sven-Goran Eriksson's men.

On-loan Blackpool man Rob Edwards will make his first start for the Canaries if Whitbread is ruled out.

Midfielder Simon Lappin has returned to training after surgery on his appendix but will not return to action for several weeks, while striker Chris Martin remains on the sidelines.

Martin (hamstring) is a fortnight away from a return, so captain Grant Holt will continue on his own up front.

Holt grabbed his 16th of the season against Preston but Aaron Wilbraham has not found the net in 12 appearances for the club and third option Simeon Jackson last scored in October.
