Liam Moore: Leicester City defender returns for Forest game

Liam Moore

Leicester City defender Liam Moore has recovered from a broken rib and is fit for Wednesday's crucial away game at promotion rivals Nottingham Forest.

Moore, 21, was injured in the 2-0 win over Middlesbrough last month and was expected to still be sidelined when the Championship leaders faced Forest.

But boss Nigel Pearson told BBC Radio Leicester: "He should be available.

"He has trained over the last week and we are pretty happy with how he has been progressing, so that's good news."

England Under-21 international Moore has made 27 appearances for the Foxes this term.
