Leicester face a tough test when they travel to Bristol Rovers tomorrow, a team on a high folllowing two league wins in succession.
Rovers proved more than a match when the two sides met at the Walkers Stadium earlier in the season, only just defeated by two very late Matty Fryatt goals to hand City a 2-1 win.
The game also pits the league's two top goalscorers together in Fryatt and Rickie Lambert, the latter currently leading the way by a solitary goal in the League One charts.
Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope: 'We've had two good wins, and for us it's a great time to be playing the league leaders.
'They're unbeaten in 18 so we know it's going to be a very tough challenge. But they've drawn their last two, and we can also take a lot of heart and confidence from the game at their place earlier in the season'.
Rovers midfielder David Pipe is doubtful for the clash due to a knee injury.
Top goal-scorer Rickie Lambert is in contention for a place after coming off the bench to score against Yeovil on Tuesday night.
Being League One's top goalscorer speaks volumes for the danger he will potentially pose the Foxes' defence tomorrow.
Recent loan signing Mark Bunn will continue in goal following his debut against Hartlepool on Tuesday night.
Pearson may decide to rest some of his under-performers including the likes of Lloyd Dyer and Joe Mattock, but don't be surprised to see both continue down the left side for the Foxes.
Scored his 11th goal of the season from midfield in Leicester's 1-1 draw with Swindon last Saturday. The youth academy graduate has scored some vital goals for the Foxes so far this season in their rise to the top of the table.
Leicester have a fairly poor record playing away at Bristol. In 10 matches where points were at stake, the Foxes have only won 2 of these, drawing 5 along the way.
