Leicester City will be hoping to avenge a rare defeat to Charlton Athletic back in August and continue their current thirteen game unbeaten streak, at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

Chris Powell returns to the club he coached and played for, looking to add to his sides recent victory over one of the Foxes promotion rivals, Queens Park Rangers last Saturday.

The Addicks were 2-1 victors against the Foxes back in August but are up against it as they face a Leicester side that have lost just once at home all season.

Charlton have also failed to win away from home since a 1-0 victory over Birmingham City in early November.

Nigel Pearson will name an unchanged squad from last weekend’s home win over Ipswich Town with Paul Konchesky suspended for the second game of his three game ban, following his sending off against Nottingham Forest.

The Foxes are 8 points clear at the top of the SkyBet Championship and bookies yesterday slashed odds to 10/1 for Leicester to win the division. Their last league defeat was to Brighton and Hove Albion back in early December.
