Burnley v Leicester preview

Defender Steven Reid (calf) is back in contention and midfielder Ross Wallace (knee) has suffered no ill effects following his recent return to action.

The only notable absentees are long-term knee injury victims Dean Marney and Kevin Long.

David Nugent is a major doubt for Leicester’s crunch trip.

The striker suffered a calf injury in the warm-up ahead of last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Swansea and boss Nigel Pearson rates him as “touch and go”.

Marcin Wasilewski should be fit after coming off against the Swans with a dead leg while Dean Hammond continued his recovery from a calf injury, playing over an hour in the Under-21s’ 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Monday.
