Leicester are likely to be without midfielder Andy King.

The Wales international was substituted after 30 minutes of Sunday's defeat at Wolves with a hamstring injury and is a major doubt.

Matty James replaced him in that fixture and could deputise again while Neil Danns and Anthony Knockaert offer further options in that area.

The pre-season promotion favourites have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions and manager Nigel Pearson insisted he will turn things around.

"I will sort it out," he told the Leicester Mercury.

"The things that let us down were a lack of concentration and a lack of acceptance of responsibility when defending.

"It is down to hard work and we will get it right. We have played three away games and had three defeats, which is a bit tough on how we have performed on reflection, but we can't give teams two-goal starts."

Burnley have no new injury problems ahead of their trip.

Manager Eddie Howe confirmed there were a small handful of the customary aches and pains among his squad following Saturday's 5-2 home win over Peterborough, but nothing severe enough to rule anyone out at the King Power Stadium.

"I think you always get a few bumps and bruises but I don't think any of them are too worrying, so hopefully we'll come through okay," he said.

One decision Howe must make is whether to hand striker Martin Paterson a second start in four days, given the Northern Ireland international's persistent hamstring problems over the past year.

Fellow forward Danny Ings (knee) is still around three months away from a return to action.
