Leicester to welcome back Schmeichel for Hull City

Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson says Kasper Schmeichel is fit for the weekend's meeting with Hull City.

?The Danish goalkeeper has been sidelined since December with a broken foot but is available for Saturday's visit of the Tigers.

?"Kasper is back in contention, which is good. We have three keepers available, which is always nice," said the Foxes boss.

?"It is only really Dean Hammond (calf) who is out, although he is back in training now, and Anthony (Knockaert) is not available because he has gone back to France to see his dad, who is not very well. Those players apart, we are pretty much a full squad."?

Pearson will have to decide whether or not Schmeichel is ready to replace Australian veteran Mark Schwarzer who has deputised during the Dane's absence.
