Football: Weekend guide to the Premiership: Middlesbrough v Leicester Last season: No fixture
Saturday 30 January 1999
Leicester will arrive at the Riverside Stadium on the back of two tough games, losing 3-0 to Coventry in the FA Cup on Saturday and then taking a 2-1 first leg lead in their Worthington Cup semi-final with Sunderland on Tuesday night. Manager Martin O'Neill will be without his influential midfield pairing of Muzzy Izzet and Neil Lennon. Northern Ireland international Lennon is serving a one-match suspension while Izzet has failed to shake off a groin strain. Veteran midfielder Garry Parker is expected to replace Lennon in midfield, while Theo Zagorakis and Stuart Campbell are vying to take over from Izzet.
