Who’s Available?

Ryan Lowe confirmed in his pre-match press conference that he has no fresh injuries in the squad to worry about.

Ched Evans is due for a scan later in the week and will see a specialist next Monday, and all being well he could be made available for full-contact training.

Emil Riis is already in training and back with a ball at his feet, but these next two games will come too soon. The Danish forward could potentially be ready for action after the international break.

Opposition Focus


Following relegation from the Premier League last season, Leicester City were considered favourites to win the Championship before a ball was kicked, and their start to the campaign will have done nothing to change people’s minds.

Still with a number of players who have spent years in the top flight, the Foxes have also introduced some new faces, as well as having a new man in the dugout in Enzo Maresca.

The former Manchester City coach has made a flying start to life in Leicester, leading his new team to eight wins from their opening nine matches.
