Bruma: Suspended for Leicester

Bruma: Suspended for Leicester

Jeffrey Bruma will be absent through suspension for Leicester.

The on-loan Chelsea centre-half was sent off during the 3-3 draw against Middlesbrough last weekend and must serve a one-match ban.

Fellow defender Kyle Naughton is a doubt due to illness but boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is hopeful he will train on Friday.

However, Ben Mee could ease any defensive worries as he is fit again after missing out at the Riverside with a knock.

Striker Martyn Waghorn was this week ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a hamstring strain in training.

Eriksson has options should he wish to make changes, with top scorer Andy King, fellow midfielders Yuki Abe and Lloyd Dyer, defender Miguel Vitor and striker Steve Howard all available for recalls.

Burnley boss Eddie Howe is set to be without Jack Cork.

The on-loan Chelsea midfielder, 21, returned to Stamford Bridge to undergo medical tests after suffering heart palpitations while on England Under-21 duty last Monday.

Cork subsequently missed last Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Ipswich and is set to miss out again, although Howe is hopeful that he will be available for the trip to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.

Strikers Charlie Austin, Steven Thompson and Martin Paterson, along with midfielder Chris McCann, remain sidelined through injury.

Howe's men have lost three of their last four games and goalkeeper Brian Jensen is pushing for a recall at the expense of Lee Grant, but left-back Danny Fox is suspended.
