Matty James Set To Miss Blackpool Trip

Matty James is Nigel Pearson's only injury concern as the Foxes prepare for their away clash with Paul Ince's Blackpool tomorrow afternoon.

Andy King will most likely be first choice to step in alongside Danny Drinkwater in the centre of midfield in what will be Pearson's only forced change.

Whilst Pearson has bolstered his front line with the loan signing of Tottenham youngster Harry Kane, the City boss is expected to start with his favoured pairing of David Nugent and Chris Wood against what promises to be a shaky Blackpool defence if recent form is anything to go by.

England under-19 star Kane is sure to see some action; however it is at the other end of the pitch where first team changes are most likely to be made.

Sean St Ledger made his return to the squad for Tuesday's visit of Charlton Athletic and, with the Foxes conceding two goals in each of their last three matches, don't be surprised to see Pearson opt for the experience of St Ledger over the youth of Keane as he attempts to plug his leaky defence.

St Ledger may have hoped for an easier test on his return to action, with stand-out player and manager’s son Tom Ince, who has scored an impressive 17 league goals this season, continuing to show why so many clubs are eager to secure his services.

Whichever team Pearson opts for tomorrow, he will need his men to be at their absolute best against a Blackpool team playing at home for the first time under new manager Paul Ince.
