Leicester got of to a brilliant start in the Championship, but still a lot of uncertainty regarding the squad, fitness and injuries, who will stay, who will come in and who will be moved on.
Mads Hermansen is in doubt for the game and most likely it will be Jacub Stolarczyk keeping the job, as he covered in the win in the Carabao Cup vs. Burton. Huddersfield is in a difficult position losing their opening game to Plymouth away. We predict that the game picture will be very similar to the Coventry game.
Victor Kristiansen, Conor Coady and Alex Smithies are the three others out of contention, with Kristiansen said to be back and ready, but still having so many other options, doubts he will be in action.
Cesare Casadei looks to be in but so far no confirmation, so still no agreement in place, but hopefully he will be available for the Cardiff game next Saturday. A loan deal will go through, and Chelsea are eager to let the player move on loan to Leicester, with moves to Italy being seen as a much higher risk, not as close in distance and Leicester will be perfect for development for the 20 year old.
