Striker Jamie Vardy was forced off towards the end of Saturday's 1-1 draw against fellow promotion chasers Burnley but is expected to be okay.

Chris Wood, who has four goals to his name in the competition this term, has been ruled out until the new year with a hamstring problem, while Sean St Ledger (groin) and Tom Hopper (shin) also remain sidelined.

Captain Wes Morgan overcame illness to start against the Clarets at the weekend while fellow defender Ritchie De Laet returned from a long-term shin complaint.
