The Foxes have taken 10 points from their last six matches to move into fifth position in the table, but they are some 16 points behind leaders Cardiff City.
Blackburn, meanwhile, have managed nine points in the same period to move into 10th position. As it stands, they are seven points outside of the top six with a game in hand on the teams around them.
The reverse fixture earlier in the season ended in a 2-1 win for Blackburn, but Leicester have the third-best home record in the division, having taken 35 points from 16 matches.
Blackburn, meanwhile, are expected to name on-loan duo Karim Rekik and David Bentley in their starting side, but Morten-Gamst Pedersen is also pushing for a recall after coming off the bench in the goalless draw with Leeds United at the weekend.
Leicester: Schmeichel; Da Laet, Morgan, Keane, Konchesky; Drinkwater, King, Marshall, Nugent; Kane, Woods
Blackburn: Kean; Orr, Dann, Hanley, Rekik; Lowe, Bentley, Murphy, Kazim-Richards; DJ Campbell, Rhodes
Sports Mole says: 2-1
