Foxes v Palace. Early team news / preview

Last updated : 19 October 2009 By Palace Reporter

Boss Nigel Pearson will choose from an unchanged squad but it remains to be seen whether he will make changes to his starting line-up.

The Foxes dominated against Derby on Saturday but had to settle for a point from a goalless draw after failing to find a way past a dogged Rams defence.

Pearson could opt to freshen up his strikeforce with on-loan Martyn Waghorn, Yann Kermorgant and DJ Campbell available as options. Paul Gallacher is also pushing for a recall in midfield.

Bulgarian defender Aleksandar Tunchev remains the only absentee as he recovers from another knee operation.

Following an impressive start to life back in the Championship, Leicester have stuttered recently after winning only one of their last six matches.

Victor Moses and Darren Ambrose look set to miss the trip for Crystal Palace.

Teenage winger Moses had been struggling with a thigh injury and lasted just 16 minutes of Saturday's 1-1 draw at Cardiff before having to be substituted.

Midfielder Ambrose is also doubtful after appearing to suffer a pulled hamstring against the Bluebirds.

Freddie Sears came on for Moses to prove his fitness after a month out with a sprained ankle and fellow striker Stern John got a late run-out as a substitute for his first appearance since dislocating his elbow on the opening day of the season.

Centre-half Claude Davis will hope to be involved after illness while left-back Clint Hill played at the weekend despite a virus and should keep his place.
