Leicester duo set to make debuts in Carabao Cup against Fleetwood

Summer signings Caglar Soyuncu and Filip Benkovic could make their Leicester debuts in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Fleetwood.

Turkey defender Soyuncu has been acclimatising since his switch from Freiburg, and boss Claude Puel could slot him in against the League One side.

Ex-Dinamo Zagreb defender Benkovic is another who has had to wait for his chance, and that Foxes bow could now well come at the King Power Stadium.

Demarai Gray found the net in Leicester’s 2-1 Premier League win at Southampton on Saturday, and could well feature from the off again.

Cian Bolger and Kyle Dempsey will both be in contention for starts for Fleetwood.

Joey Barton’s League One side are unbeaten in four matches following Saturday’s goalless draw at Charlton.

Defender Bolger and midfielder Dempsey both remained unused replacements in the Charlton draw, having recovered from knocks to be available at the weekend.

And now Barton could draft the duo into his starting XI in a bid to freshen up his side for their east midlands trip.
