Leicester City and Nottingham Forest meet on Tuesday for the right to host Swindon Town in round four of the FA Cup.

Leicester City and Nottingham Forest will meet at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening for the right to host Paulo Di Canio's Swindon Town in round four of the FA Cup.

The previous meeting between the East Midlands rivals ended in a goalless draw at the City Ground, although the visiting Foxes dominated the tie.

Forest will have to make do without the services of captain Luke Chambers, who is suspended following his red card against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Tricky Trees will be able to call upon striker Marlon Harewood though, following his decision to rejoin his first club.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson may hand a recall to striker Lloyd Dyer, while centre-midfielder Richie Wellens is expected to play from the start.

Current form:

Leicester: LDLDDW
Forest: LDLLWL

Possible lineups:

Leicester: Schmeichel; Peltier, Mills, Tunchev, Konchesky; King, Wellens, Danns; Dyer, Nugent, Beckford.

Forest: Camp; Gunter, Morgan, Lynch, Freeman; Reid, Greening, Moussi, McGugan; Harewood, Tudgay.

Sports Mole says: 3-1
