Derby will include new signing Tomasz Cywka in their squad when they host East Midlands rivals Leicester.

The 21-year-old striker has joined on loan from Wigan for the rest of the season.

Dean Leacock could make his first start for over three months.

The former Fulham defender continued his comeback from a knee injury with another substitute appearance in midweek against QPR, where he replaced Nicky Hunt.

Steve Davies also got another half an hour under his belt against Rangers following a hamstring injury and the forward is in contention for a start.

Defender Miles Addison (foot) and winger Kris Commons (hamstring) are the only injury absentees.

Foxes boss Nigel Pearson is likely to pick from an unchanged squad for the visit to Pride Park.

Defenders Bruno Berner and Alex Bruce missed the midweek home defeat to Reading with calf and groin problems respectively.

Berner has a small chance of returning to the squad but Bruce will definitely remain out after undergoing surgery.

Wayne Brown will try to oust either Jack Hobbs or Michael Morrison from the team and return at centre-half after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Jay Spearing will be hoping for his first start since joining on loan from Liverpool after making his debut as a second-half substitute against the Royals.

Fellow midfielder Nicky Adams and forwards Steve Howard, Yann Kermorgant, Dany N`Guessan and James Vaughan will also be looking for recalls.M
