Leicester given injury boost ahead of trip to Ukraine

By Harry Shellard

Leicester City have been given a huge boost ahead of tonight’s (DEC3) away match with Zorya Luhansk as long-term absentees travel with the squad.

Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyüncu and Wilfred Ndidi have been spotted boarding the plane to the Ukraine and are travelling with the squad.

Pereira has featured for the U-23’s side, but Soyüncu and Ndidi are yet to play any competitive football since returning into contention.

It is not known if they will play a role in the game, but all three players will be looking to get up to match sharpness soon to help City in their busy Christmas schedule.

Timothy Castagne is another player the Foxes aim to get back soon. He, however, hasn’t travelled with the squad but will be assessed ahead of the weekend’s game against Sheffield United.

Leicester will be looking to bounce back from a lack-lustre defeat to Premier League promoted side Fulham.
