Matty James to make the most of chance in Leicester City team
Leicester City's Matty James says he is ready to take his chance if Andy King is ruled out of tomorrow night's visit of Burnley.
James started the season in the starting line-up ahead of King, but the Wales international has shown excellent form in recent weeks and has recently risen ahead of the new arrival in the pecking order.
However, King limped out of Sunday's defeat at Wolves with a tight hamstring and is a major doubt for the visit of the Clarets to the King Power Stadium tomorrow.
But James said he is ready to step in and is determined to make the most of his opportunity.

"You always have to be ready," said James, who replaced King in the first half at Molineux.
"I could have just sat there but you have to make sure you are ready.
"Hopefully, Andy's injury won't be too bad and we will be back competing for places again soon.
"I have to just try to take my chance when it comes.
"It has been difficult coming into a new team but I am enjoying it, I am enjoying training and I think I am doing okay.
"I just have to try to keep improving with each game."
James said City had to stay positive despite Sunday's defeat.
He believes it is even more vital that City retain their good home form after losing three consecutive away games.
"Burnley will be tough but we have to make sure every team that comes to our ground know they are going to be in for a game," he added.
"We have to take it on the chin and move on because we have two big home games and we want to win them both.
"We have to make our home form as good as possible and make the King Power Stadium a fortress.
"We want that first away win as quickly as possible.
"It is still early days, but those home games will important for us.
"The mood is still positive. It is still early days. We can't be too critical but, at the same time, we have to look where we have gone wrong and improve for the next game.
"But if you don't stay positive in the Championship, it will eat you up. We have to keep fighting.
"The pressure is there when you are not winning games. We have to stay focused on each game and not look too far ahead."
