Leicester City again looks to pull themselves closer to the field as the table’s basement dwellers as they search for a second straight win, traveling to the Hawthornes to take on West Bromwich Albion at 10am ET live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.
The Foxes defeated West Ham last week, but those above them also snagged points to keep Leicester four points back of the field and six from safety. Points here could be for the taking, with the Baggies having dropped their last two matches by a combined 7-1 score.
Nigel Pearson has no new injury problems, as he’s started a nearly unchanged side from the win last weekend, as just Marc Albrighton comes into the starting lineup for just his 11th Premier League appearance this season.
Meanwhile, the Baggies have swapped the suspended Youssouf Mulumbu out for Craig Dawson, who returns from his one-match ban served in last weekend’s disastrous 4-1 loss to QPR. The club will feature a different look today as the home side sports a replica of their 1968 kit to celebrate the FA Cup win, in part to show support for Jeff Astle who scored the winner in that game and who will launch a charity foundation today.
