Jose Fonte will miss Crystal Palace's FA Cup third round replay against Leicester at Selhurst Park.

Fonte is serving a one-match ban and will sit the tie out as Palace bid to meet Watford in the fourth round. Paddy McCarthy has had his shoulder operation and faces up to three months on the sidelines.

Midfielder Ben Watson's calf injury means he is a doubt, but striker James Scowcroft could make the bench after recovering from a torn hamstring.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson is set to keep with the same side that beat Leyton Orient 3-0 last weekend.

Top scorer Matty Fryatt is fit again after being ruled out for the first game with Palace due to an ankle injury.

Matt Oakley will keep his place in the side, along with midfielder Mark Davies, who is on loan from Wolves.
