Leicester could have defender Wayne Brown back in contention for the M69 derby against Coventry.

The centre-half missed the victories against Cardiff and Crystal Palace with a tight hamstring but is expected to be fit.

However, Brown is not guaranteed to go straight back into the starting XI due to the partnership formed by Jack Hobbs and Michael Morrison in his absence.

On-loan defender Alex Bruce looks like he will be out for several weeks after his first start for the club against Cardiff was restricted to just 35 minutes because of a stomach muscle strain.

James Vaughan was rested for the trip to Palace but the on-loan Everton striker should return to the squad.

Sammy Clingan has a chance of returning to Coventry`s line-up but Michael McIndoe has been ruled out.

Midfielder Clingan missed Tuesday`s dramatic 2-1 defeat to Cardiff having failed to overcome a tight calf sustained last weekend against Plymouth, but he could well be involved for the short trip to the Walkers Stadium.

However, Clingan`s possible return has been countered by the loss of winger McIndoe who went off at half-time against the Bluebirds with a back/hip muscle tear.

Otherwise, manager Chris Coleman has no new injury or suspension concerns for the clash, with defenders Ben Turner, Issac Osbourne and Jordan Clarke out for the long-term.

With Sunday`s clash at Leicester sandwiched in between games against Cardiff and West Brom, Coleman has already stressed he is tempted to shuffle things around where necessary.
