Midfield duo set to face Foxes

Barton sustained a foot injury in the latter stages of the 3-0 home win over Reading on August 15 and has subsequently missed the last three games.
He was not risked for the midweek Carling Cup victory over Huddersfield but is now in line for a return.
Meanwhile, Butt was forced off at half-time against the Terriers with a foot problem but was expected to train over the weekend and come into contention to face the Foxes.
However, Newcastle face a striker shortage with Andy Carroll and Xisco ruled out with groin injuries and leading scorer Shola Ameobi doubtful with a foot problem.
