Watford visit the Walkers Stadium hoping to claim the three points that would see them keep their dying play-off hopes alive.
The Hornets sit just a point above City in the Championship table, and must win all of their remaining matches to stand a chance of making the top six.
Although still also mathematically possible for the Foxes, their hopes of an unlikely play-off finish were ultimately killed off at Nottingham Forest on Friday.
Although unfortunate to have walked away from the City Ground with nothing, it was another harsh reminder to Sven-Goran Eriksson that he has a lot of defensive work to do over the summer.
The Foxes twice came back from behind before Chris Weale's goalkeeping howler handed Forest all three points for their own play-off bid.
Meanwhile Watford have faced up to a mixed campaign of their own. Their season graph resembles something of the Himalayas, beginning and ending strongly after a significant dip in form during the middle of the campaign.
In Danny Graham they have the league's top goal-scorer with 24 goals after a superb year for the Hornets in front of the net.
Indeed it was Graham who grabbed a cruel late winner for Malky Mackay's side in the reverse fixture at Vicarage Road earlier in the season after the Foxes had come back from two goals down.
Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson will be craving a strong end to the season from his side as they play on for pride, amid his sizeable summer task of turning the Foxes into promotion material next time around.
Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson: 'We have started to make plans and we will plan more when we know where we are.
'Unfortunately we deserve to be where we are. Come Tuesday, after our home game against Watford on Monday, we will start to seriously think about what we want to do.
'I will be here next season - as long as it is up to me.'
Bulgarian centre-back Aleksander Tunchev, although unlikely to be ready for the clash, could be in contention after his lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Patrick van Aanholt, Lloyd Dyer, Yuki Abe and Steve Howard are all pushing for starts.
Seemingly revitalised in an under-performing Leicester side of late, Oakley has been by far City's best player over the last month.
Having not scored in around two years before his home strike against Crystal Palace over a week ago, Oakley struck again in the weekend defeat against Forest.
Seems to finally have found his niche in defensive midfield under Eriksson.
Stephen McGinn remains sidelined, while Matty Whichelow, Ross Jenkins and Tom Aldred are all doubtful.
An obvious choice, but how can you overlook the man with 24 goals?
Although not a natural goal-scorer, Graham has found himself in the right place at the right time on a regular basis this year, much to the displeasure of opposing Championship defences across the nation.
- Leicester have won their last two home clashes against Watford 4-1.
- Both sides have won only one of their last six league matches.
- Watford have gone four matches without defeat, however.
- Leicester are currently on a run of back-to-back defeats.
With nothing to play for but pride we'll probably just go and win this one. Leicester 2-1 Watford.
