Preview: Leicester City vs. Leeds United

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Championship meeting between Leicester City and Leeds United at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City and Leeds United will be hoping to maintain their winning starts to the new campaign when the sides meet at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Nigel Pearson's Foxes began their Championship season with a 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough last weekend, before seeing off Wycombe Wanderers in the League Cup on Tuesday.

Leeds ran out 2-1 winners against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday before knocking Chesterfield out of the League Cup in midweek.

Zak Whitbread and Ben Marshall could return to the Leicester side after both missed the Wycombe match due to knocks.

For Leeds, midfielder Rudy Austin may return to the starting XI after missing the first two games of the season through suspension. Manager Brian McDermott could also bring Stephen Warnock back into the team after he sat out the Chesterfield match through injury.

Ross McCormack, Luke Varney, Luke Murphy and Lee Peltier are also expected to return for the visitors.
