                                                    New faces set for Wednesday debuts Sheffield Wednesday will include new loan signings Jeremy Helan and Mamady Sidibe in their squad for the visit of Leicester.

                                                    Manchester City defender Helan and Stoke striker Sidibe could both make their Owls debuts, but manager Dave Jones will be without teenage midfielder Ross Barkley, who has returned to parent club Everton.

                                                    Jones must decide whether to recall Chris Lines, who had been sidelined for three months before returning to the squad for last week's defeat at Nottingham Forest, Rhys McCabe or Paul Corry to fill the gap left by Barkley.

                                                    Wednesday captain Martin Taylor is hoping to win a recall in central defence alongside Anthony Gardner as Miguel Llera sits out a one-game ban for reaching five yellow cards, while striker Chris O'Grady is struggling to shake off a foot problem.

                                                    The Owls, who have lost their last three league games, are looking to secure their fourth home win of the season.

                                                    Leading goalscorer David Nugent will miss out for Leicester but experienced defender Paul Konchesky is back in the Foxes squad.

                                                    A neck injury forced Nugent off during the 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest earlier this month and the problem flared up again last weekend against Ipswich, with the striker having to be withdrawn after half an hour - but not until he had scored twice to help put Leicester 3-0 up in a game they went on to win 6-0.

                                                    Nugent, who has scored nine goals in his last 12 outings, is also likely to sit out Tuesday night's match against Leeds at Elland Road.

                                                    Wednesday fan Jamie Vardy, Nugent's replacement against the Tractor Boys, will be keen to get the nod again after he was rejected by the Owls as a teenager before rebuilding his career in non-league football.

                                                    Foxes boss Nigel Pearson also has Marko Futacs as an option after the big Hungarian came on as a substitute against Ipswich to score his first League goal for the club.

                                                    Marshall masterclass has Foxes purring Ben Marshall scored one goal and set up another on his return to Hillsborough as promotion-hopefuls Leicester consigned struggling Sheffield Wednesday to a 2-0 defeat - their fourth consecutive npower Championship loss.

                                                    Marshall enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Owls last season as they secured promotion to the second tier, but the winger showed no room for sentiment as he set up Danny Drinkwater for the opening goal before doubling Leicester's lead himself after the interval.

                                                    The former Stoke man was then giving a standing ovation by both sets of supporters when he was substituted by Foxes boss Nigel Pearson, who is also held in high regard at Hillsborough after spending seven years with the Owls in his playing days.

                                                    It was all too easy for Leicester, who again outlined their promotion credentials after last week's thumping 6-0 win over Ipswich.

                                                    Wednesday, on the other hand, have won just two of their last 15 games and new loan signing Mamady Sidibe, who was making his first competitive appearance since August 2010 after enduring terrible injury problems, was ineffective on his debut after a move from Stoke on deadline day.

                                                    Wednesday gave the ball away far too easily in the first half and Marshall tried his luck from 20 yards but failed to test Chris Kirkland.

                                                    The home side looked short of confidence and it needed a desperate last-ditch tackle from Martin Taylor to prevent Martyn Waghorn from racing clear after a defensive mix-up.

                                                    An unmarked Andy King headed wide when Waghorn picked him out with a pin-point free-kick after 38 minutes, but two minutes later the Foxes were in front.

                                                    Wednesday felt they should have had a free-kick when Jay Bothroyd went down on the halfway line but referee Paul Tierney saw nothing amiss and Drinkwater played a neat one-two with Marshall before firing just inside the far post with a clinical finish.

                                                    Leicester carried on where they left off after break and Kirkland was called into action to palm Marshall's shot around the near post.

                                                    Foxes skipper Wes Morgan should have doubled his side's lead 12 minutes into the second half when he rose highest to meet Waghorn's inviting corner but the big centre-back headed over the crossbar.

                                                    It was all one-way traffic and Kirkland produced a fine save to tip the impressive Waghorn's venomous left-foot strike over the bar.

                                                    Bothroyd's disappointing loan spell continued as he was replaced by Gary Madine midway through the second half, much to the delight of the Wednesday faithful.

                                                    Leicester were toying with the Owls and it was only a matter of time before they added a second goal, which duly came 15 minutes from time when Marshall picked his spot with a measured left-foot finish from the right side of the penalty area, which found the far corner of the net.
