Local derby, not exactly sure what the pitch is like, as there are flood warnings across the Midlands, but early reports are ok and a dry, sunny day is expected.

Ian Holloway has been as busy as any in the transfer window and has added 7 players to his squad, including dipping his toe into the Hungarian market, where he had fantastic success at Plymouth. He also took classy Matt Oakley, keeper Alnwick from Spurs and two proven strikers in Hayles and Howard, all of whom are set to make their home debuts today.

Key player, Stephen Clemence, also returns to the side and provides yet more options. Leicester have been unlucky in two New Year away defeats, creating more chances than both QPR and Southampton, but not putting them away, their overall performance levels have improved greatly.

The visitors are without skipper, Michael Doyle, they have a poor record against their local rivals, losing on the last 4 visits and without a win in 8, home or away. Recent league performances have been decidely average and they seem to save their best for the cup.

6 points Leicester City -1/4 ball 1.89 asian line.

Good Luck.
