Leicester are expected to unveil Craig Levein as their new manager soon, but the focus at the club is firmly on their trip to Cardiff on Saturday.

Cardiff took extra time and penalties to beat Bournemouth on Tuesday, but will be hoping that their players are not suffering from tired legs.

The Welsh side will see the return of Tony Warner, Danny Gabbidon and Jobi McAnuff, and loan duo Darren Williams and Gary O'Neil are also back in contention.

Australian defender Tony Vidmar is suspended and will not feature.

Martin Keown is ruled out for Leicester with a nerve problem in his leg, but Nikos Dabizas has returned, along with Matt Elliott.

Ian Walker is closing in on a return, but the match may come too soon whilst Lee Morris is back in training and could get a place in the squad.
