Williams fit but squad looks thin

Williams fit but squad looks thin

Good news for Leicester City is that Gareth Williams may be fit after all for Saturday's home clash with Midlands rivals, Wolves.

Williams had been out recently with an ankle injury and his early departure after only 15 minutes of QPR game on Tuesday suggested a possible recurrence.

But City caretaker manager Rob Kelly revealed that Williams had a dead leg, trained today, and may well be available for selection.

The question then would be, has James Wesolowski grabbed one of the midfield spots?.

The Australian, who replaced Williams, had an excellent game at QPR, made one of the goals and helped the team to a first win at QPR in 20 years.

Whatever Kelly decides Williams' recovery will be a relief given that City are looking desperately short of numbers in their established squad.

Less certain of being available is Nils Eric Johansson who took a blow on a foot and was x-rayed for a potential break.

That proved negative but the swelling still makes him a doubt for Saturday and with Tiatto still out with hamstring trouble Kelly will have few selection options in some departments.
