Jamie Vardy set for Leicester City return at Bristol City
Jamie Vardy could return to action for Leicester City at Bristol City tomorrow.
The striker played 45 minutes in a training ground friendly against Notts County on Tuesday as he continues his comeback from a heel injury.
Vardy has not featured since the home defeat to Cardiff City on December 22, but Pearson said he wasn't ruling him out of the trip to Ashton Gate.
"We will check on him today but he seems to be okay," said Pearson.

"He did better than I thought (in the game) considering he hasn't had an awful lot of training time. It was good for him. We had a few players who needed some time on the pitch as well."
However, Zak Whitbread, Sean St Ledger and Richie Wellens will all be missing, although Pearson said Whitbread and Wellens were not far away from a return.
"Zak is improving but won't be available for the weekend," he said.
"Sean is also improving but it is a slow process and I can't give any time-scale on that one.
"Richie is training with us so he shouldn't be too long either.
"So far this season, we have avoided picking up too many injuries. You are always going to get one or two, but the majority of the injuries we have had have been in game situations.
"We have worked very hard to reduce the chances of picking up injuries in training. The squad is very competitive."
Meanwhile, midfielder Neil Danns has denied he had a bust-up with Pearson.
Danns has made just one appearance this season, in the Capital One Cup defeat to Burton Albion, after falling out of favour.
He spent two months on loan at Bristol City and has now linked up with Jermaine Beckford at Huddersfield Town on loan for the rest of the season.
Danns and said it was a "mystery" why he is no longer in Pearson's plans.
"There was a lot of speculation I had a fall-out with the manager but that's not true," he told BBC Radio Leeds.
"It's been a bit of mystery what's happened there really.
"The last game I started for them I was captain and everything was going well but, obviously, the gaffer has other plans.
"I'm old enough to respect that people have their own ideas so I'm just going to come here and give it my all."
