Sports Mole previews the FA Cup fourth-round tie between Huddersfield Town and Leicester City.

Huddersfield Town host Leicester City in the FA Cup on Saturday as they look to return to form ahead of a potential relegation battle in the Championship.

The Terriers have not won in the league since November 10 but they were victorious in dispatching Charlton Athletic in the previous round of the FA Cup.

Huddersfield sacked manager Simon Grayson on Thursday after the club were soundly beaten 4-0 by Watford last weekend, and they are expected to make changes to their starting lineup, with Keith Southern and Lee Novak likely to come into the starting lineup.

Leicester have won their last five matches in all competitions and manager Nigel Pearson could decide to retain the same team that beat Middlesbrough last Friday.

Pearson will also be hoping that the Foxes can repeat the result between these sides on New Year's Day, when Leicester secured a comprehensive 6-1 win over the Yorkshire side.
