Football - Double derby delight for Foxes

Paul Konchesky and Jamie Vardy could return to the Leicester squad for the visit of east midlands rivals Nottingham Forest.

PA Sport Report

Full-back Konchesky and striker Vardy both missed the impressive 3-0 win at Watford last Saturday with hamstring strains but have made good progress in their recoveries this week.

Chris Wood will miss the clash after being called up to the New Zealand squad for their World Cup play-off with Mexico. The Foxes had requested that the striker be able to link up with his country after the Forest game but the All Whites have remained firm on their insistence that Wood would join up with the squad in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Full-back Ritchie De Laet is still out as he continues to recover from shin surgery.
