The Championship : Leicester v Leeds Team News, Live Streaming from the King Power Stadium

Its Leicester City v Leeds Utd live streaming from the Championship, as Nigel Pearson looks for second win of the new season at the King Power Stadium.

100% records, admittedly fleeting ones, go on the line on Sunday when Leicester welcomes Leeds United to the King Power Stadium.

Both sides have made winning starts to the season with Leicester following up their 2-1 away win over Middlesbrough with a similar win away over Wycombe in the Capital one game.

The midweek cup win was particularly pleasing for Republic of Ireland defender Sean St. Ledger who struck a late winner at Adams Park days after his own goal had put ‘Boro ahead.

Leeds meanwhile emulated the efforts of Leicester by winning both their opening games 2-1, an opening day victory over last season’s play-off semi-finalists Brighton followed with a win over Chesterfield in the League cup.

Both those games have taken place in the comforts of Elland Road but after winning just four games on the road last season the trip to the Midlands could prove problematic for Brian McDermott and side, especially as Leicester won 13 and drew 4 of their 23 homes games last year.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson is hoping to hope to have Zak Whitbread and Ben Marshall fit for the first home clash of the season.

Whitbread was stretchered off early at Middlesbrough following a blow to the head while Marshall missed the midweek cup clash with Wycombe through illness.

Last season’s leading scorer David Nugent is also pushing for a first league start of the season. The former Pompey man followed up his 30 minutes as a substitute at Middlesbrough with a goal scoring appearance in his 60 minutes on the field against Wycombe.

Leeds meanwhile welcomes back midfielder Rudy Austin following a suspension. Austin was banned for three games following his sending off against Brighton at the tail end of last season but is now ready to take his place in the squad.

Former Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock, reported Middlesbrough target Ross McCormack, Luke Varney, Luke Murphy, Lee Peltier and Noel Hunt are all set to return to the Leeds starting line-up after being rested midweek while El-Hadji Diouf is also available after recovering from an infected shin.
