Football - Foxes could return

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson can recall a host of players for the visit of Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Pearson made eight changes for the Capital One Cup tie with East Midlands rivals Derby in midweek, with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender Liam Moore and midfielder Danny Drinkwater the only survivors from the 2-2 league draw at Blackpool.

Wes Morgan, Ritchie De Laet, Andy King, Lloyd Dyer, Anthony Knockaert and David Nugent are among those who could return to the starting line-up against the Tykes.

Sean St Ledger and Chris Wood are progressing well after injury but will not be involved on Saturday. Defender St Ledger played 60 minutes in a development squad fixture this week after recovering from a knee injury, while striker Wood should soon be back in full training after a hamstring problem.
