Both put in impressive displays in the centre of midfield against Liverpool and Kevin Keegan may prefer to stick with that pairing.

Sun Jihai is absent due to a hamstring injury so the back four should be unchanged.

Robbie Fowler will remain in attack, looking to extend on his run of 3 goals in 6 games.

Paul Dickov will be playing for Leicester while Steve Howey is injured. Young centre-back Matt Heath - who has just returned from a loan spell at Stockport - is likely to deputise.
