A local derby at the Walkers Stadium and plenty to look forward to despite both sides occupying lowly league positions.
The Sky Blues go into the game on the back of an excellent FA Cup win at Blackburn while the Foxes have been extremely busy in the transfer market.
'They have got a huge squad and it is a game that should whet anyone's appetite because the M69 derby is always a good one for the fans.
'It's a surprise they have struggled a bit this season because they have brought in DJ Campbell and Collins John, and now they have Steve Howard.
'But that can happen - it is a very big club and the expectation is high, so it is a great game for us.'
New signings Gabor Bori, Laczko Zsolt and Ben Alnwick could feature. Isiah Osbourne is set to join on loan from Aston Villa but not until after the weekend.
The big striker endured a difficult first-half of the season in the Premiership but is a proven performer at this level.
Kevin Thornton is in line to replace the suspended Michael Doyle after an impressive display in the reserves and with Stephen Hughes suffering from a dead leg.
Out-of-sorts in the league of late, the Maltese star bounced back with a superb display against Blackburn last week.
The Sky Blues have lost five and drawn three of last eight games against the Foxes. Last season's 3-0 defeat at the Walkers Stadium came days before Iain Dowie's appointment as manager.
Martin Atkinson of West Yorkshire takes charge.
Burnley at home for the Sky Blues, Norwich away for the Foxes.
