Leicester are unchanged for the visit of Middlesbrough as they look to move eight points clear at the top of the Championship, while Boro swap Lukas Jutkiewicz for Curtis Main.

Middlesbrough have recalled Lukas Jutkiewicz up front for their match with Leicester City as two of the Championship's in-form sides meet at the King Power Stadium this afternoon.

With neither Burnley nor Queens Park Rangers in action today, the Foxes can go eight points clear at the top of the table with victory over Boro, who are flying under new manager Aitor Karanka.

They have won five of their last seven games and therefore the Spaniard has resisted temptation to bring in Chelsea loan stars Nathaniel Chalobah or Kenneth Omeruo and made only one alteration, with Curtis Main dropping out to make room for Jutkiewicz in attack.

Leicester, who have won their last six Championship matches, stick with the same XI that beat Leeds United last time out, although Gary Taylor-Fletcher is named on the bench alongside Kevin Phillips.

Leicester: Schmeichel; De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky; Knockaert, Drinkwater, James, Dyer; Nugent, Vardy
Subs: Hammond, King, Taylor-Fletcher, Logan, Mahrez, Wasilewski, Phillips

Boro: Given; Whitehead, Williams, Ayala, Friend; Carayol, Adomah, Leadbitter, Varga, Ledesma; Jutkiewicz
Subs: Konstantopoulos, Butterfield, Gibson, Chalobah, Omeruo, Kamara, Emends
