Evans and Maguire set for Magpies return
Leicester will go into Friday's Premier League visit of Newcastle with defensive duo Jonny Evans and Harry Maguire back in the squad.
England international Maguire missed the last two matches because of suspension and the birth of his daughter respectively, while Evans was ruled out of the 4-1 win at Huddersfield last week because of a hip injury.
However, boss Brendan Rodgers revealed that both players have been in full training this week and should be involved against the Magpies at The King Power Stadium as the Foxes target a fifth successive win.
In-form striker Jamie Vardy will be fit for the clash with Rafa Benitez's men, despite being replaced late on against the Terriers last weekend.
Rodgers said: "He's absolutely fine. He felt a slight niggle in his groin at the end of the game.
"Rather than risk it we took him off, but he's fine and as sharp as normal. He'll be fine for Friday."
Marc Albrighton will again miss the Newcastle game because of a hamstring injury, but Rodgers confirmed the winger has been back in training, while he is not sure if Daniel Amartey will return from a long-term ankle injury before the end of the season.
