Defender Steven Reid (calf) is back in contention and midfielder Ross Wallace (knee) has suffered no ill effects following his recent return to action.
The only notable absentees are long-term knee injury victims Dean Marney and Kevin Long.
David Nugent is a major doubt for Leicester’s crunch trip.
The striker suffered a calf injury in the warm-up ahead of last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Swansea and boss Nigel Pearson rates him as “touch and go”.
Marcin Wasilewski should be fit after coming off against the Swans with a dead leg while Dean Hammond continued his recovery from a calf injury, playing over an hour in the Under-21s’ 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Monday.
