Football - Foxes likely to be at full strength

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson expects to have a fully-fit squad for the visit of Birmingham.

It means the Foxes boss has options should he wish to alter the team that started last weekend's 1-1 draw with fellow play-off chasers Brighton.

Defender Ritchie De Laet and strikers Chris Wood and Harry Kane were introduced from the bench at the Amex Stadium.

Central midfielder Richie Wellens and wingers Lloyd Dyer and Anthony Knockaert were unused substitutes on the south coast.

All six players will be pushing for a recall on Friday night as Leicester look to end a eight-game winless run with a victory that would, ahead of Saturday's fixtures, see them move above Brighton and into the final play-off spot.
