There is good news and bad news for Leicester City defenders facing Wolves on Saturday – only one half of their potent new strike force is set to play.

Jeremie Aliadiere, the dashing attacker signed on loan from West Ham is only contracted to the club for 93 days so his debut is being delayed so that would be available for any end-of-season play-off matches.

But set to make his full debut for Wolves is prolific Polish International marksman Tomasz Frankowski, recently signed from Elche CF, Spain.

Frankowski scored a cracking volley for Poland against England in their World Cup qualifying game at Old Trafford and has so far plundered 115 goals in 173 games for his country.

His seven World Cup qualifying goals were instrumental in helping Poland through to the finals.

He helped Wisla Krakow to five Polish League titles plus the Polish Cup twice, and the League Cup. He also won the country’s Golden Boot three times.

In European football his record is 13 goals from 26 matches so he should be a challenge indeed for young City centre-back Paddy McCarthy.

Definitely out of the Wolves line-up are George Ndah (knee), Mark Clyde (hip), Jackie McNamara (knee). Keeper Matt Murray is close to fitness after twice breaking a bone in his foot but the City game could be just too early.
