Bury boss Richie Barker will be without defender Mark Hughes.

The central defender succumbed to a hamstring injury in the closing stages of Saturday's 2-0 win at Wycombe and was replaced by Patrick Cregg.

Ben Futcher is away on loan at Mansfield and cannot be recalled in the first 28 days, leaving Andrai Jones as the only replacement for Hughes.

However, on-loan Hull striker Mark Cullen is back to full fitness and made a substitute appearance in Saturday's win.

The Shakers have no other injuries or suspensions as they seek to claim another scalp against npower Championship opposition, having beaten Coventry in the previous round.

Leicester expect to be without Kasper Schmeichel when they travel to Bury in the Carling Cup second round.

The goalkeeper faces a one-match ban after he received two yellow cards in the space of 30 seconds for time-wasting during the 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Chris Weale, Schmeichel's replacement at the City Ground, is in line for a rare start.

Schmeichel told the Leicester Mercury: "It's a pity because I had two loan spells there when I was at Manchester City and I was looking forward to going back."

Further changes for Leicester could be in the pipeline after strikers David Nugent and Darius Vassell sustained knocks against Forest.

Ghanian-born Germany Under-21 international Jeffrey Schlupp could return to the starting XI for the tie after hitting a hat-trick in the previous round against Rotherham.
