Middlesbrough face an anxious wait to see if Daniel Ayala will be available to face Leicester.
The centre-half's loan spell from Norwich ended on Thursday night and Boro are desperately trying to agree a permanent deal ahead of kick-off at the King Pro Stadium.
Boro are also waiting on Albert Adomah, who faces a late test on his ankle injury, while goalkeeper Jason Steele is a long-term absentee following ankle surgery.
Luke Williams (Hartlepool), Adam Reach (Bradford) and Richard Smallwood (Rotherham) all left on loan on Thursday and will play no part as Boro aim to make it seven Championship games unbeaten.
