Leeds United boss Simon Grayson will once again be forced to reshuffle his defence following Tom Lees sending off in midweek.
Lees will serve a one-match suspension and with Darren O`Dea still out with a head injury, Grayson will probably bring experienced defender Andy O`Brien back into the side to partner Patrick Kisnorbo.
Alex McCarthy will make his debut in goal following his arrival from Reading on loan on Friday.
McCarthy will replace Paul Rachubka in goal after his horror show in the defeat To Blackpool.
Grayson may look to freshen things up after the humiliating 5-0 defeat to Blackpool in midweek with Luciano Becchio, Mika Vayrynen and Lloyd Sam all pushing for a start.
Leeds are still without Andy Lonergan and Davide Somma through injury.
Kasper Schmeichel and Jermaine Beckford will both be hoping to line up against their former clubs for the first time.
Schmeichel has been the regular goalkeeper for Leicester since his move away from Leeds in the summer.
Beckford has struggled since arriving at Leicester following his move from Everton in August. He has netted just once in eight appearances since his arrival and he was an unused substitute in Leicester`s 3-1 win at Burnley in midweek.
Darius Vassell and Lloyd Dyer both suffered injuries last weekend at West Ham and were forced to miss the midweek win at Burnley. The pair are rated doubtful once again for this game.
