Nigel Pearson has almost a full squad of players to choose from ahead of Leicester City’s SkyBet Championship clash against Millwall at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

Anthony Knockaert returns from suspension following the five yellow cards he picked up in the weeks before last week’s win at Ipswich.

Ritchie De Laet also returns from injury following a lengthy spell on the sidelines following a bone infection in his shin.

The Foxes will be looking to regain their winning mentality at home following the 2-0 home defeat to East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest ahead of the international break.

With only one home defeat all season and experiencing a 8 game winning streak at fortress King Power, the Foxes have seen themselves climb into the automatic promotion places in English football’s second tier.

A win this afternoon could see Leicester climb to the top of the table should league leaders Burnley fail to win away at Huddersfield.

Millwall arrive in the East Midlands without Foxes loanee Martyn Waghorn and Nicky Bailey.

Manager Steve Lomas also has doubts over Liam Trotter (groin) but Jimmy Abdou returns to the squad.

The visitors have failed to win away from home since September and find themselves struggling in 18th in the SkyBet Championship.

On their last visit to the King Power Stadium they were 1-0 victors and will be hoping to match the feat this afternoon.
