Striker Chris Wood is fit for Leicester City's clash against Charlton
Leicester City striker Chris Wood is back for tonight's clash against Charlton at the King Power Stadium (7.45).
The New Zealand international has recovered from the knee injury that has seen him miss the last two games.
The 21-year-old has scored seven goals in his first six games for City since joining from West Brom, and will give his side a much-needed boost after back-to-back defeats.
City assistant manager Craig Shakespeare confirmed that Wood is fully fit ahead of tonight's Championship game.
"It is not a risk, he is 100 per cent," said Shakespeare. "He has played so many games this season but has only missed two.
"If they are injured here, they work very hard so, in terms of fitness levels, he won't have dropped too much.
"He has joined in the training the last two or three days, so he is fine and raring to go."
Wood is joined on the returning list by Ben Marshall, who has shaken off a foot injury he picked up after scoring City's opener in their 2-1 defeat at Peterborough.
"It's pleasing news," said Shakespeare. "They both trained yesterday and are ready for tonight."
Defenders Zak Whitbread and Sean St Ledger are also eligible for selection against Charlton, and Shakespeare said: "They have both trained fully for a couple of weeks and they have had a few under-21 games.
"We are very pleased to have them all around the squad at the moment because we will need them for the amount of games coming up.
"To have everyone fit gives you competition for places, and there are a lot of games coming up and a lot of points to play for."
Shakespeare did not to rule out the prospect of City dipping into the loan market to strengthen the squad.
"It is something we will look at if we think necessary," he said.
"There is always a chance that some things will happen, so you have to be ready and you have to have your finger on the ball, and we will do that.
"We are very pleased with the quality of the squad we've got. We've not got a massive squad compared to the rest of the Championship standards."
