Football - No new worries for Foxes

Leicester have no new problems as they prepare for the visit of Bournemouth and what manager Nigel Pearson hopes will be a seventh successive home victory.

PA Sport Report

Only full-back Ritchie De Laet will be absent after undergoing surgery last week on an infected cut on his shin. The Belgian is expected to be out for between four and six weeks.

Foxes academy graduate Liam Moore is expected to switch to right-back again as cover for De Laet, leaving Poland international Marcin Wasilewski to partner captain Wes Morgan in the centre of defence.

Strikers Chris Wood and Gary Taylor-Fletcher have recovered from their hamstring injuries and will hope to force their way into Pearson's plans having been unused substitutes for the 2-1 victory over Huddersfield at the King Power Stadium last weekend.
