Brendan Rodgers will be hoping his team's improvement continues as Leicester look to avoid an upset against Newport County this evening in this third round Carabao Cup clash. After a poor start, the pressure is lifting around the King Power. Will this visit of the League Two team from Wales provide another chance for a flex or are we looking at the third round's first giant killing? 

The team sheets are in and Jamie Vardy returns to the starting XI for the Foxes as Rogers shuffles the pack. Understudy keeper Daniel Iversen, who saved three penalties in the shootout against Stockport in the last round, replaces Danny Ward in goal for the home side, while Wilfried Ndidi makes his first start since returning from a hamstring injury.

The visitors meanwhile name a back three of James Clarke, Mickey Demetriou, Priestley Farquharson, with the dangerous duo of Omar Bogle and Lewis Collins leading the line for Newport.
