Leicester will be forced to make two changes from the side which defeated Liverpool as the Foxes aim to reach the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in 19 years.

Wing-back Frank Sinclair is out for six weeks and will be replaced by Andy Impey.

On-loan Gillingham midfielder Junior Lewis is cup-tied and Matthew Jones and Stefan Oakes will be vying for his spot.

Simon Royce will again deputise between the posts for the injured Tim Flowers.

Wycombe have all six of their strikers ruled out for the trip.

They include record signing Sean Devine and leading scorer Andy Rammell.

That has left boss Lawrie Sanchez forced to pair loan signing George Clegg and midfielder Keith Ryan up front.

But stalwart Dave Carroll is out with a calf strain and Wanderers have just 16 fit players travelling to Filbert Street.

Leicester (from): Royce, Impey, Rowett, Taggart, Elliott, Davidson, Savage, Izzet, Jones, Akinbiyi, Sturridge, Oakes, Gilchrist, Gunnlaugsson, Andrews, Guppy, Cresswell, Benjamin, Eadie.

Wycombe (from): Taylor, Townsend, Castledine, McCarthy, Bulman, Harkin, Bates, Lee, Vinnicombe, Cousins, Essandoh, Simpson, Ryan, Brown, Clegg, Osborn.
