Team news

Crystal Palace Victor Moses and Darren Ambrose are likely to miss the trip to Leicester due to injury.

Moses injured his thigh against Cardiff City at the weekend and Darren Ambrose has a hamstring problem.

Centre-back Claude Davis has recovered from a virus and left-back Clint Hill should play despite also suffering with illness.

Leicester have a clean bill of health for this match. Bulgarian defender Aleksandar Tunchev is the only player sidelined as he recovers from a knee operation.

Quotes

Midfielder Andy King

"We are aware that if we want to be challenging for a play-off position we hope to be winning those games at home and we haven't done that in the last two. But I don't think anyone should question our home record. It is just a minor blip. It was great last year and we have carried that on this season. No-one is worried about that and we will pick ourselves up for the next game against Crystal Palace.

"We will have a look at Palace's strengths and weaknesses. They have been in the Championship for many years, been up to the F.A. Premier League and are a strong side. I am sure they will come here with a game plan, whether it will be the same as Derby's or not, and we will have to break them down and get the three points."
