Leicester boss Nigel Pearson will pick from an unchanged squad.

Pearson named an unchanged side against Portsmouth on Saturday after getting his return to the club off to a winning 3-0 start at home to Crystal Palace the previous weekend.

He must decide whether changes are necessary following the 1-1 draw at Fratton Park.

Sol Bamba, named on the bench against Pompey on his return from suspension, is an option in defence along with John Pantsil.

Neil Danns, Gelson Fernandes, Yuki Abe and Michael Johnson provide alternatives in midfield, while strikers Steve Howard and Jeffrey Schlupp will be hoping for recalls.

Striker Darius Vassell (knee) and defender Aleksandar Tunchev (groin) are the only players unavailable to Pearson.

Kevin Phillips is poised for a return to the Blackpool squad.

A minor knock ruled top-scorer Phillips out of the 2-2 draw with former club Birmingham at the weekend, but the veteran striker played a full part in training on Monday.

Holloway has no new injury worries, but the game comes too soon for defender Craig Cathcart and midfielder Keith Southern, who miss out with a thigh injury and illness respectively.

The Seasiders have not tasted defeat for four games and, even though he was disappointed to concede a late equaliser against Birmingham, Holloway is enjoying his side's encouraging form.

"I really can't ask for anything more from the lads," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "I am very proud and enthused about what they are doing, and I thoroughly enjoyed another match (against Birmingham) with my team playing so well.

"I can't be disappointed with the effort or the skill level - some of the football is as good as we've managed to produce before, if not better."

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
