Midfielder Richie Wellens returns from suspension as promotion-chasing Leicester welcome Doncaster.

Wellens served a one-match ban at the weekend following his sending off in the recent goalless draw with Newcastle.

Striker Martyn Waghorn is likely to continue playing through the knee injury he picked up in the 1-0 defeat by Barnsley last month, but fellow forward Yann Kermorgant is likely to miss out once again through a hamstring injury.

Nolberto Solano missed Saturday's 2-1 win at Blackpool after returning to Peru for personal reasons, but the midfielder was back in training on Monday and could be involved in the squad.

The Foxes will be looking to extend their two-match unbeaten run as they attempt to strengthen their position in the play-off places.

Doncaster manager Sean O'Driscoll is expected to name an unchanged starting line-up.

Rovers slumped to their fourth straight defeat over the weekend, but O'Driscoll, who has no new injury or suspension worries, is not expected to make any changes despite a poor run of results.

New signing Shelton Martis is expected to make his second start for Rovers. The Dutch defender was replaced by Sam Hird just after the hour-mark on Saturday, but is likely to partner James O'Connor at the heart of defence.

Fellow centre-halves Jason Shackell (groin), Adam Lockwood (foot) and Byron Webster (foot) all remain sidelined, the latter breaking a metatarsal in training last week.

James Hayter and Lewis Guy, both second-half substitutes against Reading, are pushing for recalls as O'Driscoll's side chase their first league win since the home victory over Watford on January 16.
