Leicester take on Watford tonight in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at the King Power Stadium.

Defender Paul Konchesky is expected to be fit for the game after he missed the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest that confirmed Leicester's place in the play-offs over their East Midlands' rivals.

Watford missed out on automatic promotion on the final day of the season. Their goalkeeper Manual Almunia will undergo a late fitness test.

The second leg is at Watford's Vicarage Road on Sunday and the winner of the tie will face either Brighton or Crystal Palace at Wembley for a place in next season's Premier League.
