Leicester v Saints

Saints take on managerless Leicester on Saturday, with both teams using their FA Cup runs as a welcome break from unsatisfactory Championship campaigns.

Vital Quotes:

George Burley:

'It'll be a tough game, we've got to show the same attitude and commitment we did against Palace and hopefully can get the right result'

City caretaker boss Rob Kelly:

'There is a different buzz, a different excitement about cup football. It's not quite there yet because of the effects of Craig Levein leaving but there will be when the game comes round.'



Leicester Team News:

Midfielder Gareth Williams will face a late fitness test on his ankle injury.

Lee Morris is likely to miss the match, as he recovers from knee surgery. Danny Tiatto is also likely to remain sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Momo Sylla is away on African Nations Cup duty and new signing Matty Fryatt is cup tied.

Player to watch: Stephen Hughes

The former Rangers midfielder is City's creative force in midfield and scored the equaliser in their impressive 3-2 victory over Spurs in the last round.

Saints Team News:

Saints have an extensive list of players recovering from injury, who probably won't make the trip to the Walkers - Djamel Belmadi (achilles), Matthew Mills (knee), Yoann Folly (thigh), Matthew Mills (knee), Kamil Kosowski (hamstring), Brett Omerod (dead leg), Rory Delap (achilles).

Darren Kenton serves a one match suspension.

Captain Nigel Quashie and Darren Powell both missed the Palace game with speculation they could be leaving St Mary's.

Tomasz Hajto has joined Derby.

Its likely new signings Jim Brennan and Darren Potter could be thrown straight into the team after joining Saints yesterday as both are eligable to play.

Player to watch: Dexter Blackstock

Dexter's been our main goal threat recently and should lead the attack again.
