Rotherham will be forced to make a change in goal as first-choice Conrad Logan is on a six-month loan from the Foxes and is ineligible to play as part of his deal so Andy Warrington should make the step up from the bench.

That could be the only change manager Andy Scott makes following the opening-day success over Oxford.

Luke Foster (hamstring) was not involved on Saturday, but he could make a return while Michael Raynes will be hoping to break into the side following his move from Scunthorpe on Friday.

Johnny Mullins and Jamie Annerson (both knee) are the only two long-term absentees as the Millers aim to beat Championship opposition at this stage of the competition for the third time in four years.

Darius Vassell heads a list of absentees for Leicester.

Former England striker Vassell was sent off as the Foxes began their npower Championship campaign with a 1-0 win at Midlands rivals Coventry on Saturday. He starts a three-match suspension.

Lee Peltier faces a fortnight on the sidelines with a groin injury. He was taken off after an hour at the Ricoh Arena, where he scored on his debut.

Fellow defenders Sean St. Ledger (Republic of Ireland) and John Pantsil (Ghana) and midfielders Andy King (Wales) and Yuki Abe (Japan) are away on international duty.

Goalkeeper Conrad Logan, who is on loan at Rotherham from Leicester, is ineligible to play against his parent club.
