Swindon Town are the visitors to the Walkers tomorrow as Leicester look to maintain their 11 point advantage at the top of League One.
The points were shared between the two sides when they met at the County Ground, Swindon scoring twice late on to grab a 2-2 draw after Matt Oakley and Matty Fryatt had given the Foxes a two goal lead.
Swindon manager Danny Wilson: 'I am sure the lads are really looking forward to going up there. It is a lovely stadium and it's getting fuller all the time.
'I am sure that we will take a few fans there and it promises to be a great atmosphere. Leicester are top of the league and the pressure will be on them.'
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'I always believe we're good enough to go up but I look at the table and think it could be better.
'There's still 16 games to so there are still a lot of games to be won and lost.
'We are in a decent position but if anyone is starting to relax then they need to reassess that because we are still in for a tough final third of the season.'
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is expected to name an unchanged lineup for the fourth successive game.
Joe Mattock is back after his duty with England Under-21's, and should keep Bruno Berner on the bench once again.
The big striker has proved to be a vital cog in Leicester's side so far this season, helping fellow strike partner Matty Fryatt to 25 goals. The former Luton man has the potential to be a real thorn in Swindon's side with his power and aerial threat.
Danny Wilson will be without striker Lee Peacock, who remains sidelined with a back injury.
Notable long-term injuries include Barry Corr, goalscorer in the 2-2 draw between the two sides earlier this season, and Hasney Aljofree; both players set to be out for the rest of the season.
18 goals for a team sitting in 19th place in League One is an impressive feat, and the Foxes backline will have to be on the lookout for the Swindon forward. Scored when the two sides met at the County Ground.
