Leicester Lions hope Makinen and Hughes will make Easter return

Leicester Lions hope Jari Makinen and Kyle Hughes will return from injury in time for the Easter programme.

Both were forced to miss last Saturday's home defeat against Ipswich in the League Cup because of injury.

Promoter David Hemsley said: "Those injuries just compounded the problems, with facing such a strong side."

Leicester are back in League Cup action this weekend, facing Ipswich away on Friday before playing host to Rye House at Beaumont Park on Saturday.
