Leicester City’s number one shot stopper Kasper Schmeichel is closing onto a return from injury against Stoke City on Saturday.
Claudio Ranieri is impressed with the Danish International’s recovery after watching him work hard in the training sessions.
Kasper Schmeichel has been out since the start of November after fracturing his hand. Leicester City have slumped to 14th spot in the league as the title holders hope to end their poor run.
The Foxes have registered just one win from their last five Premier league games. Ranieri will be desperate to add Kasper Schmeichel back to his starting 11.
“Kasper trained very well today so I’ll check Friday,” Ranieri told reporters.
“Kasper is training very well and feels good. He made a little game between us on Thursday. I want to see the reaction on Friday but the hand is okay.”
Star Leicester man Danny Drinkwater is also set to undergo a fitness test who is suffering from a knee problem.
“I will also check Drinkwater Friday,” Ranieri added.
“He has a little problem with his knee from a kick in Porto. He tried to continue then he asked me to change.”
