Team News

Coventry
Leicester
  • Mark Robins will recall centre-back Liam Kitching after he served the final instalment of a three-match suspension in the FA Cup against Oxford.
  • The Sky Blues look set to revert to an elsewhere unchanged starting XI following a convincing win against Middlesbrough.
  • Leicester will be without Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanache due to Africa Cup of Nations duties, while Wilfred Ndidi was forced to drop out of the Nigeria squad due to injury problems.
  • With two strikers away on international duty and Jamie Vardy out through injury, Tom Cannon is the obvious contender to lead the line in the meantime.

Prediction

  • Coventry are one of the Championship's form teams heading into Saturday's clash after following up a 3-1 away win against Middlesbrough with a 6-2 demolition of League One side Oxford United in the FA Cup.
  • Mark Robins' men have now climbed to eighth in the table and are unbeaten in their last seven league games.
  • Leicester cruised further clear at the top of the Championship table two weeks ago when they hammered relegation-threatened Huddersfield 4-1 at the King Power Stadium.
  • Enzo Maresca's side have won eight and drawn two of their last ten league fixtures and are now ten points clear of second-placed Ipswich.
