Foxes striker Jamie Vardy could be back to face Bristol City
Jamie Vardy could be in contention for a return to action for Leicester City at Bristol City tomorrow.
The striker played 45 minutes in a training ground friendly against Notts County on Tuesday as he continues his comeback from a heel injury.
Vardy has not played since the home defeat to Cardiff City on December 22 but Foxes boss Nigel Pearson said he wasn't ruling him out of facing the Robins.
"We will check on him today but he seems to be okay," said Pearson.

"He did better than I thought (in the game) considering he hasn't had an awful lot of training time. It was good for him. We had a few players who needed some time on the pitch as well."
However Zak Whitbread, Sean St Ledger and Richie Wellens will all be missing for the trip to Ashton Gate, although Pearson said Whitbread and Wellens were not far away from a return.
"Zak is improving but won't be available for the weekend," he said.
"Sean is also improving but it is a slow process and I can't give any time scale on that one.
"Richie is training with us so he shouldn't be too long either.
"So far this season we have avoided picking up too many injuries. You are always going to get one or two, but the majority of the injuries we have had have been in game situations.
"We have worked very hard to reduce the chances of picking up injuries in training. The squad is very competitive."
