'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millwall vs. Leicester City

The New Den

14/03/09

3 p.m.

Foxes Head to The 'Wall

Leicester will be looking to bounce back after their disappointing display in midweek which saw them leave Tranmere with nothing after a 2-0 defeat at Prenton Park.

The Foxes remain 9 points clear at the top of League One, but face a stiff test from 4th placed Millwall at the New Den on Saturday.

Millwall themselves had enjoyed life in League One this season, beating Leicster in the process when the two sides met at the Walkers Stadium earlier in the season.

Vital Quotes:

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: 'Millwall have had periods in their history where they've been quite successful and they're doing well but that doesn't bother me as it's about us. We can't afford to feel comfortable'.

Millwall Team News:

Millwall have retained the services of James Henry on loan from Reading for a further two months, so the midfielder should retain his first team place.

Captain Paul Robinson remains sidelined with a broken metatarsal, along with Danny Senda, who found out his season is over yesterday.

Player to watch: James Henry

The winger scored a last minute winner in Millwall's win at Huddersfield, and provided the assist for their goal against Northampton midweek. A potentially dangerous one to watch.

Leicester City Team News:

New signing Tony Warner looks certain to start after being drafted in earlier today to replace the injured David Stockdale.

Andy King is a potential doubt after limping off in Leicester's 2-0 defeat at Tranmere on Wednesday night.

Player to watch: Steve Howard

Deal with him, and you deal with Fryatt. Howard has been instrumental in helping to provide the goals for Fryatt on a regular basis this season, and Tranmere proved that you can cut off Leicester if you cut off him.
