TEAM NEWS: Bradley Orr will start for Ipswich Town at Leicester City

Leicester v Ipswich: Mick McCarthy has revealed he has no fresh injury worries ahead of the trip to the Walkers Stadium.

Nigel Reo-Coker sat out training yesterday with a cold but McCarthy expects the midfielder to be fine, while Scott Loach has also recovered from the dead leg he suffered at Walsham-le-Willows in Tuesday night.

McCarthy admitted he was impressed with midfield duo Andy Drury and Luke Hyam as well as Michael Chopra in the 5-1 win over the village side in the Suffolk Premier Cup.

Understandably, the Blues boss was given little away over his starting 11 although Lee Martin is back from suspension while Richie Wellens has returned to Leicester City and could actually face Ipswich tomorrow.

McCarthy did admit that new loan signing, Bradley Orr, would start at right-back – meaning he faces a difficult decision over who starts in the centre of defence between Luke Chambers, Danny Higginbotham and Tommy Smith – the latter returning today after playing for New Zealand in China on Wednesday.
