Match verdict: Leicester City bank point in goalless draw at Bolton
Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson handed a debut to teenage defender Michael Keane as he made four changes to the side that suffered a second consecutive defeat at Watford on Saturday.
Keane completed his one-month loan move from Manchester United yesterday morning, but the 19-year-old went straight into the heart of the defence in place of Zak Whitbread, who was suspended.
Jesse Lingard, who also joined City yesterday from United, was named on the bench.
There were recalls for Lloyd Dyer and Martyn Waghorn, while right-back Ritchie De Laet returned to the side after serving his suspension at Vicarage Road. Liam Moore, Matty James and Ben Marshall all dropped to the substitute's bench.

3 min: City have a great chance to open the scoring when they break quickly through Waghorn, who feeds Dyer and he squares it for David Nugent. He only has Adam Bogdan to beat but the Trotters keeper blocks his shot and Samuel Ricketts throws himself in front of Nugent. The Bolton defence then smother Anthony Knockaert's effort after some tricky play inside the area by the Frenchman.
11 min: Knockaert tries his luck from long range after a patient build-up from City but it is wide. No repeat of his stunner at Huddersfield, but City are on top and already the home fans are growing impatient.
15 min: De Laet finds Knockaert with a great pass and he pulls the ball back for Danny Drinkwater, who unleashes a fierce strike from the edge of the box but Bogdan deflects it over the bar.
22 min: Waghorn goes close with a curling effort that Bogdan touches away at full length. Waghorn has started the game in lively fashion. City have dominated the first 20 minutes and the Bolton fans are booing their own team at the Reebok Stadium.
26 min: Zat Knight just deflects Knockaert's shot wide for another City corner. Bolton are struggling to cope with the blue tide, which is relentless. City have had five efforts on goal to Bolton's zero.
31 min: Eagles tests Kasper Schmeichel with a long-range free-kick but the Danes pushes it away to his left. Bolton's first shot.
33 min: BOOKING Ricketts for foul on Dyer.
34 min: Wes Morgan heads wide from a Waghorn cross. It was a difficult chance.
36 min: De Laet hits the crossbar from an acute angle after being teed up by Knockaert.
40 min: SUBSTITUTION A blow for City as Paul Konchesky limps off with an injury. Jeff Schlupp replaces him.
42 min: BOOKING Darren Pratley for foul on Schlupp.
44 min: Bolton go close to snatching an unlikely lead as a deflection falls to Chung-Yong Lee, but Schmeichel produces a double save. Pratley then goes close with a dipping volley.
H-t: Bolton 0 City 0
46 min: Bolton almost take the lead as Schmeichel has to make a smart save at the near post to deny Chris Eagles after City showed some jitters at the back. Then Schmeichel has to tip a Kevin Davies header around the post from Eagles' free-kick.
55 min: Schmeichel is again called into action and pushes Mark Davies' strike from the edge of the area around the post. Bolton have been much brighter at the start of the second half. But, then again, they really could not get much worse.
57 min: SUBSTITUTION Moore on for Keane.
66 min: Nugent hits the side-netting as City start to get a foothold in the game once more, with Waghorn proving to be the catalyst for the away side.
70 min: Waghorn stings Bogdan's hands again with a long-range effort. This game is evenly poised and could go either way, with both sides finding chances on goal.
80 min: Matt Mills produces a great block to deny Nugent from inside the Bolton box after another incisive break by the visitors. And then Bogdan produces a fingertip save to deny Knockaert, whose shot was creeping inside the near post.
85 min: SUBSTITUTION Lingard comes on for Waghorn.
F-t: Bolton 0 City 0
