Nugent ruled-out of Sheffield visit

Leicester City's leading goalscorer has been ruled-out of Saturday's visit to Hillsborough following an aggravation of his neck injury.

David Nugent was substituted after just half an hour of the Foxes' huge 6-0 home victory over Ipswich Town last weekend and assistant boss Craig Shakespeare insisted that he was removed as "a precaution".

But Nugent, scorer of nine league goals for City this season, has now been ruled-out of the Foxes trip to South Yorkshire on Saturday, where they will face Sheffield Wednesday.

The club tweeted this afternoon and said they expect over 3,500 Foxes supporters to make the trip up the M1 this weekend.
