Steve Kean rings the changes to his Blackburn Rovers side that took on Hull mid-week, as he tries to deliver a more convincing win over today’s opponents Leicester, writes Laura-Jayne Gorse.
Rovers are without their scoring hero from Wednesday night as Colin Kazim-Richards sits out with a knee injury he picked up late on in the game.
Full debuts go to Edinho and Bruno Ribeiro, with a first home start of the season handed to Morten Gamst Perdersen.
Fabio Nunes drops to the bench after his first appearance at Ewood Park on Wednesday night.
Rovers are looking for the second successive home win, alongside the point they earned away at Ipswich on the opening day of the season, to secure their best start to a league campaign in 12 years.
