    Team news and stats ahead of Leicester vs Brighton in the FA Cup fifth round on Wednesday (kick-off 7.30pm).

    Team news

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy will play some part in the FA Cup tie at home to Brighton as he makes his way back from groin surgery.

    The 34-year-old made his first appearance since his operation as a substitute for 30 minutes against Wolves at the weekend and manager Brendan Rodgers wants to help him regain his sharpness ahead of Saturday's visit of Liverpool.

    Defender Timothy Castagne is not yet ready to return after a hamstring injury which has kept him out of the last two games while Wes Morgan (back), Dennis Praet (thigh) and Wesley Fofana (thigh) are still missing.

    The 26-year-old central defender rolled his ankle in the 1-1 draw against Burnley on Saturday.
