Leicester head to Huish Park tonight knowing that a win will take them 7 points clear at the top of League One following MK Dons' defeat at Carlisle on Saturday.
Nigel Pearson's men have a big opportunity to increase the gap between themselves and 2nd place, and Leicester will be making sure they do not take Yeovil's own league position for granted.
Yeovil themselves have struggled somewhat in the league so far this season, and currently sit perilously above the relegation zone, with just 2 points seperating them and Leyton Orient.
It will be the first ever time that the two sides have met at Huish Park, and the Foxes will be keen to make up for their disappointing cup exit to Crystal Palace in midweek. Yeovil themselves went down 2-1 to Scunthorpe on Tuesday night and will be looking for vital points to steer themselves away from the drop zone.
Yeovil will be without captain Terry Skiverton, suspended after his dismissal at Scunthorpe.
Lee Peltier will also be unavailable for the match through suspension, but the Glovers could hand a debut to recent signing Luke Rodgers.
The new signing has a point to prove following his move from Port Vale, and will be looking to get on the scoresheet in front of the cameras.
Leicester will be without centre back Aleksander Tunchev after he was ruled out for the season in midweek, meaning a return to action for Michael Morrison.
The Foxes could recall Mark Davies, Lloyd Dyer and Matty Fryatt after they sat out the Palace game, and there could also be a debut for new recruit Tom Cleverley, on loan from Manchester United.
Has the potential to make things happen for Leicester and will no doubt pose a threat to Yeovil's defence.
The two teams have met only once in a competetive fixture, earlier in the season when Lloyd Dyer's solitary goal gave Leicester a 1-0 victory.
Yeovil 0-1 Leicester
Saturday 24th January:
Yeovil: Southend (A)
Leicester: Huddersfield (H)
