Leicester City v Wednesday
Tuesday 13 February
King Power Stadium
The Owls make the midweek trip to table-topping Leicester City who sit 11 points clear of second-placed Southampton.
The Foxes are unbeaten in four league games, winning their last three, as their Premier League return looks certain at the first time of asking.
Our last meeting, in November, saw the Owls earn a point in the final minute at Hillsborough, as Jeff Hendrick poked home in front of the Kop to cancel out Abdul Fatawa’s opener.
Wednesday will be buoyed by Friday evening’s 2-0 win over Birmingham City, as we sit just five points away from safety.
Wednesday: Akin Famewo and Momo Diaby, who both left the field during Friday’s win over Birmingham, will be assessed before the game.
Dominic Iorfa is pushing for a return after stepping up his recovery in training. Callum Paterson (knee) will be missing after undergoing surgery.
Leicester: Jannik Verstergaard could return for the Foxes after missing the win over Watford and Marc Albrighton will also be assessed ahead of the game.
Wilfred Ndidi is unavailable through injury and the game will come too soon for Kelechi Iheanacho to return, following his involvement in Sunday’s AFCON final for Nigeria.
Referee: Andy Davies
Assistant Referee 1: Graham Kane
Assistant Referee 2: Geoge Byrne
Fourth Official: Geoff Eltringham
