New boys set for Foxes debuts

admin

Defender Vitor and midfielder Moreno were not involved on Saturday as the Foxes began their Championship campaign with a 3-2 defeat at Crystal Palace, where Paulo Sousa’s side were 3-0 behind after 41 minutes.

Paul Gallagher was also absent at Selhurst Park due to a thigh problem but the forward is expected to play some part against the League Two club.

“We decided it would have been too much of a risk to play Vitor and Gallagher (at Palace) but they have trained 100% and they will, perhaps, play half a game,” said Sousa.

Keeper Conrad Logan, defenders Tom Kennedy and Tom Parkes, midfielder Ritchie Wellens and striker Steve Howard are also available for recalls should Sousa wish to make further changes.
