Play-off chasing Colchester United are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium tomorrow in what should be a hotly contested battle.
The U's are currently 8 points off of the crucial 6th spot, but manager Paul Lambert still believes the team has what it takes to make it.
As for Leicester it will be business as usual as the team look to sustain and build on their 9 point advantage at the top of League One.
(From BBC Sport)
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson: "It will be another tough game because they've had a bit of a resurgence.
'We'll take the game on its own merits - they don't have a great deal to lose but we have plenty'.
Colchester manager Paul Lambert: 'Leicester are where they are because they're the best team and I think they'll win the league.
'It's a great game for us - big crowd, terrific stadium and every time we've played teams that are up there we've played well ourselves.
'But I'm not going up there with any fear or trepidation, we'll go and try to win it'.
Goalkeeper Tony Warner is expected to retain his place between the sticks despite the availability of fellow loanee David Stockdale who returns from injury.
Steve Howared begins the first of his two match suspension, so Barry Hayles could be called to the starting lineup.
A big part of Leicester's thus far successful campaign, the captain will need to lead by example to get the job done against a tough Colchester side.
New Cheltenham loan signing Ashley Vincent is unavailable through injury, while Steven Gillespie and Simon Hackney will face late fitness tests.
Other recent loan signings Neal Trotman and Karl Hawley are available for Paul Lambert.
A former Leicester player, he's bound to do something isn't he? An impressive player in League One this season, a dead ball specialist and a threat to the Foxes.
Colchester have never actually beaten Leicester before. In the five meetings between the two sides (all in the last three seasons) there have been 4 draws and 1 win for Leicester, which came courtesy of a Lloyd Dyer strike earlier this season.
