Sports Mole previews the Championship meeting on Boxing Day between Hull City and Leicester City at the KC Stadium.

Swiss goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic will keep his place in the Hull City starting lineup for the Boxing Day meeting with Leicester City at the KC Stadium.

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.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson also has selection problems, with Sean St Ledger and Michael Keane both ruled out because of hamstring problems.

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.
