Lloyd Dyer will hope to return to the Leicester squad for the visit of Watford.

The winger missed the wins against QPR and Peterborough after sustaining a knock in the defeat at West Brom on Good Friday. However, the best Dyer could hope for would be a place on the bench.

That is where Matt Oakley has started the last two matches but the midfielder will be pushing for a recall along with Nicky Adams, Yann Kermorgant, Robbie Neilson, Dany N`Guessan and James Vaughan, who has extended his loan spell from Everton until May 3.

Alex Bruce returned to the squad following groin surgery as an unused substitute against Peterborough and the on-loan defender should be involved once more.

Victory for Leicester will guarantee them a play-off spot if Blackpool lose and Middlesbrough fail to win.

Henri Lansbury and Jon Harley return to the Watford squad.

Arsenal loanee Lansbury and fellow midfielder Harley missed last weekend's win over Plymouth through suspension.

Ross Jenkins and Stephen McGinn deputised against Argyle, the latter making his full debut, and boss Malky Mackay must decide whether to change a winning line-up.

The depleted Hornets were also missing full-back Lloyd Doyley and winger Will Buckley due to hamstring injuries and they will be assessed closer to kick-off.

Centre-half Martin Taylor shrugged off a knock in time to make the bench and he will push for a start at the Walkers Stadium.

On-loan midfielder Tom Cleverley has gone back to Manchester United after his season was ended by a knee-ligament injury.
