Huddersfield entertain Leicester City this evening looking to bounce back following the 3-2 home defeat against Watford.

They will have to do it without loanee Jermaine Beckford, who has been ruled out by his parent club.

Alan Lee and Sean Scannell will fight it out for the starting place but James Vaughan could come into contention if passed fit

Vital Quotes: Simon Grayson

"Leicester are one of the favourites for the division - and rightly so when you look at the money they have spent and the squad they`ve accumulated. Their squad has good Championship and even Premiership experience and when I watched them at Hull the other week they played well.

"When you have players like that in their squad, they should be up in the top half of the division - but with that comes pressure. They have some talented players; over the last few weeks (David) Nugent got a hat-trick against Hull and Jamie Vardy has settled in very well following his move from Fleetwood, but right through the team they have great experience and we`ll have to produce a performance to get the result.
