Having finally got three points on the board against Sunderland two weeks ago, we’ve now got the perfect opportunity to build on that and further strengthen our top eight credentials.

There’s a reason why Leicester are bottom of the league, despite showing some recent signs of fight and determination to try and escape an immediate return to the Championship.

A trip to the King Power Stadium won’t be a walk in the park though, especially for us. We have a habit of making hard work of our games against so-called ‘lesser’ opposition, so I don’t think we can expect to see us come away with a comfortable three points tomorrow.

But we have been boosted by the return of Winston Reid and Enner Valencia, with the latter half-expected to slot straight back in to the starting XI. Reid may have to settle for a place on the bench though, what with James Tomkins and James Collins both impressing in recent outings.

So here’s how we might line up against Leicester City on Saturday…
