Football - Morgan to miss out

Leicester captain Wes Morgan may sit out his side's Capital One Cup tie at Carlisle as a precaution.

PA Sport Report

Morgan missed the Foxes' 3-2 home league win over Birmingham on Saturday with a back injury and manager Nigel Pearson looks likely to rest his centre-half for the second-round clash at Brunton Park. Fellow defender Sean St. Ledger is the only other absentee as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.

Pearson takes his Leicester side to face the club with whom he began his managerial career back in 1998.

Pearson famously helped keep the Cumbrians in the Football League on the final day of the 1998/99 season thanks to a dramatic stoppage-time winner against Plymouth from on-loan goalkeeper Jimmy Glass.
