The 28-year-old only made his debut for the Tigers in their last match against Derby County, but reports have claimed that Steve Bruce was satisfied with his performance between the posts.
Bruce's son Alex is suspended for the fixture, which could lead to another start for Abdoulaye Faye at the back.
However, Martyn Waghorn has recovered from an operation to remove his appendix and may start for the Foxes.
Should Leicester emerge victorious from the match, it will be their 1,000th win in the second tier of English football.
Possible starting lineups:
Hull: Jakupovic; Chester, Faye, Hobbs, Elmohamady; Brady, Evans, Meyler, Quinn, Koren; Simpson
Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Morgan; Whitbread, Vardy, King, Waghorn; Knockaert, Nugent
Sports Mole says: 2-2
