LEICESTER CITY:ROBERT HUTH IS DETERMINED TO CONTINUE HIS COMEBACK FROM INJURY

Leicester player Robert Huth is determined to continue his comeback from injury in under-23s tomorrow.Robert Huth will be in City squad that will be bidding to reach the quarter-finals of the Checkatrade Trophy tomorrow when they take on former City midfielder Richie Wellens’ Oldham Athletic. The German defender has not played much this season after undergoing surgery on his ankle in the summer and then suffered a setback in training. But he played the full 90 minutes in City’s 6-1 Premier League 2 win over Tottenham last week and he could start again at Boundary Park. His comeback from injury is crucial for City, as City are without captain Wes Morgan because of a hamstring injury, but Puel said he would not rush Huth back into action.
“I think it was important for him to get 90 minutes under his belt last time,” said Puel.
“It was not a lot of work for him in that game but it was important for him to be back in a competitive game in the under-23s. Now he must continue his work, get more game time, and we will see when he can be available for the first team".
Leicester City are one of only two under-23 sides to reach the third round, with Chelsea under-23s also bidding to reach the last eight.
