Leicester City vs Sheffield United - Wes Morgan in line for Leicester return in FA Cup

Leicester captain Wes Morgan could make his return from injury against Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

The central defender has been out since suffering a hamstring injury on New Year’s Day but he might be back in the squad for the fifth-round tie.

Shinji Okazaki is still struggling with the knee problem that saw him miss the Premier League trip to Manchester City and the striker will remain on the sidelines on Friday night.

Wales international David Brooks is likely to return to Sheffield United’s squad.

The attacking midfielder, who has been suffering with glandular fever, has not played for the first team since early December but Blades boss Chris Wilder has confirmed he is ready for action having featured and scored in an under-23 game on Monday.

Midfielder John Fleck starts a two-game ban after picking up his 10th booking of the season in last weekend’s victory over Leeds, while goalkeeper Simon Moore serves the second match of a three-game suspension for his red card at Wolves.

Midfielders Ryan Leonard, Ricky Holmes and Lee Evans are all cup tied having arrived at Bramall Lane last month. Defender Kieron Freeman (knee) is close to a return but will not be involved.
