Leicester manager Nigel Pearson will be seeking more firepower from his stuttering strike force this evening, as Crystal Palace are the visitors to the Walkers Stadium.
City enter tonight's game on the back of a frustrating 0-0 draw with Derby County, a game in which they should have secured all three points against the defensive-minded Rams.
Palace visit the Walkers Stadium in 14th place following their 1-1 draw with Cardiff City at the weekend, a game marred by accusations of racial abuse aimed towards Michael Chopra.
Neil Warnock's side are seeking their first win at the Walkers Stadium, currently unbeaten in five league matches.
Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock: I think it will be a good game. I read his (Nigel Pearson's) comments about Derby on Saturday about coming for a draw, but we won't be doing that, we don't know how to do that, so it should be a cracking match.'
Neilson --- Brown --- Hobbs --- McGivern
Oakley --- King --- Wellens --- Dyer
Fryatt --- Howard
With quality in the final third significantly lacking of late, Leicester fans will be hoping their top-scorer can find the net tonight after a barren run of four games without a goal in the league.
Hill --- McCarthy --- Fonte --- Butterfield
Derry --- Danns --- Carle
Sears --- N'Diaye --- Lee
The former City centre back has a point to prove at the Walkers Stadium after taking his fair share of criticism from the club's fans during his spell with the club. An ever-present under Neil Warnock so far this season, McCarthy is a competent defender. Has the tendency to see red on occassions however.
Head to head:
Crystal Palace: 19
Leicester: Matty Fryatt (7)
Crystal Palace: Darren Ambrose (4)
All signs point to a draw here. Leicester 0-0 Palace.
Monday 26th October:
Leicester: Reading (A)
Saturday 24th October:
Crystal Palace: Nottingham Forest (H)
