Leicester defender James Justin return to action delayed

Leicester City defender James Justin has seen his return to action delayed.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers had hoped to have Justin, who has been out since damaging his anterior cruciate ligament in February, available this month and the 23-year-old had been pencilled in to play for Leicester Under-23s against Tottenham on November 23.

Yet Rodgers revealed that the club have had to put the brakes on Justin's comeback bid. He said: "He had trained with the first-team squad for a few weeks and was looking very good.

"At that stage we wanted to get him into an Under-23 game but there was just a slight reaction to that which has put him back, but not for too long. I would say in the next five or six days he will join the squad again.

"We just have to make sure after a long time out we make sure he is ready to be back, and take it step by step. In those few weeks he looked absolutely brilliant."
