Leicester City v Blackburn - as it happened
Top-scorer David Nugent failed to shake off a neck injury he picked up in the goalless draw at Blackpool on Saturday.
So Leicester City made just the one enforced change as Anthony Knockaert returned to the side to face Blackburn in place of Nugent.
That meant City reverted to their usual 4-4-2 system, with loan signing Harry Kane making his home debut since after arriving from Tottenham Hotspur for the rest of the season. He partners Chris Wood in attack.
2 min: City start brightly and Ben Marshall shoots from long range, but his effort is harmlessly high and wide.

3 min: Kane holds off a defender on the edge of the area and turns and shoots, but there is no power behind the shot.
7 min: Kane again – this time he latches onto a mistake by Karim Rekik and shoots from the edge of the box. Keeper Jake Kean gets a hand to it, but not a strong one and the ball rolls agonisingly past the post.
9 min: Knockaert's free-kick is dangerous and Danny Murphy has to head the ball over his own bar.
11 min: Knockaert swings over a good cross and Kane has a free header from just inside the area, but he puts it wide.
21 min: Kane drives into the box and the ball falls for Knockaert, whose fierce drive is parried away for a corner by the keeper.
22 min: Rovers half clear a Knockaert corner and Danny Drinkwater shoots from long range. His effort is just inches over the bar.
24 min: Kasper Schmeichel produces a world-class save. Morton Gamst Pedersen's shot is deflected by Jordan Rhodes and Schmeichel manages to change direction and push the ball over the bar.
26 min: Blackburn's Kean is still the busier keeper and has to push a Marshall shot past the post at full stretch.
27 min: An incredible miss by young Michael Keane. Wood helps the corner back into the six-yard box and Keane blasts over from just a couple of yards out.
29 min: GOAL (1-0) Classic wing-play from Marshall, who gets to the by-line and whips over a deep cross which Wood heads home. City deserve to be ahead.
42 min: GOAL (2-0) Knockaert fires a corner to the back post and Kane out-jumps everyone to score his first goal for the club. He plants a firm header down into the bottom corner.
45 min: Marshall dissects the Rovers defence to pick out Wood's run and the big striker shoots over at full stretch.
H-T: City 2 Blackburn 0
46 min: Rovers boss Michael Appleton makes a double substitution in a bid to get back into a game that is rapidly slipping away from them.
50 min: Wood plays a great ball for Drinkwater, whose cross finds Kane but his shot is just over the bar. Another impressive attacking move from City.
52 min: The City barrage continues. Marshall cuts in off the right and fires a curling shot just over.
72 min: Wes Morgan heads wide from Marshall's long-range free-kick. Morgan has been so impressive that Rhodes, one of the Championship's most dangerous strikers, is withdrawn after making no impact.
76 min: City have the game under control now and are seeing out these 45 minutes in professional fashion. Rovers are still offering little in way of a threat.
77 min: Lloyd Dyer comes on as a sub and immediately has a great chance after seizing on a Rovers mistake, but Kean is out well to save. Dyer did have Wood unmarked inside him.
82 min: Jason Lowe shoots from long range, but it is harmlessly straight at Schmiechel.
85 min: Danny Murphy drags a shot wide from 18 yards.
86 min: Wood goes close to his second with a curling effort which has Kean beaten, but also beats the far post.
88 min: Kean tips a Marshall free-kick over the bar and, from the corner, Martyn Waghorn's cross flashes across the face of the Rovers goal. City are finishing strongly.
90+1 min: Paul Konchesky's long-range effort is deflected wide. City are still going for more goals.
90+2 min GOAL (3-0) From Waghorn's delivery, Andy King heads home into the far corner
