Stoke have had nearly two weeks to prepare for Saturday’s trip to Leicester but Paul Lambert will still be without Peter Crouch and Stephen Ireland. Few changes are expected from the side that drew 1-1 with Brighton last time out, although Lambert has revealed 18-year-old forward Tyrese Campbell will make his debut in their next few games.

Riyad Mahrez is back in contention for Leicester having featured in their last two games. Wes Morgan completed 90 minutes against Sheffield United in the FA Cup last weekend after six weeks out injured. Robert Huth is stil working his way back from injury for the Foxes and remains a fitness doubt. A knee injury may also keep Shinji Okazaki out this weekend.

Leicester ended a three-game winless streak when they beat Sheffield United in the fifth round of the FA Cup last weekend. The Foxes will now look to end an identical run in the Premier League this weekend.

Stoke have avoided defeat in three of Paul Lambert’s four matches in charge of the club. While, the Potters are still second from bottom, only three points seperate 19th and 13th in the Premier League.

The fact that Stoke are without a win away from home in any competition since October would suggest they will have to settle for another week in the bottom three. Leicester are unbeaten in four home league matches and should have enough to see off Lambert’s side here, especially with Mahrez back in the mix.
