Claudio Ranieri: Braves the elements at Leicester

Graham Alexander will select from a similar Fleetwood squad for their final home game of the season against Colchester.

The former Burnley and Preston defender has no new injury or suspension concerns to contend with – Danny Andrew (knee) and Jamille Matt (leg) remain long-term absentees – and they cannot challenge for promotion or go down at this late stage.

Alexander went for an unchanged XI last time out and may continue with the same players again as he takes a closer look at youngster Tyler Forbes and Ashley Hunter at this level.

Loanee Liam McAlinden and Nick Haughton will be among those hoping to make starts having been substitutes only for the past few games.

Colchester manager Tony Humes will select his starting line-up from an unchanged squad.

The U’s have no major new injury or suspension problems following last week’s home draw against Scunthorpe, which left them four points adrift of safety with three games to play.

Goalkeeper Sam Walker recovered from a knee injury to start against Scunthorpe, while skipper David Fox is also hoping to continue after returning to action following a four-game absence due to a foot problem.

Striker Macauley Bonne staked his claim for a recall to the starting XI with a double for the Under-21s against Millwall in midweek.
