Shane Duffy says fellow centre-back Leon Balogun is more than capable of stepping in for Albion.

Graham Potter will have a shortage of options at the heart of the defence when Leicester visit the Amex after the international break.

Lewis Dunk will be missing after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.

Add to this Adam Webster was already missing for at least a month with ankle ligament damage, which forced him off early in the win over Norwich.

Balogun looks favourite to step in against Jamie Vardy and company.

Duffy said: “We have got good depth in the squad and everyone wants to play, so that is why the gaffer has been great by keeping everyone ready.

“The lads who have playing having been doing well so a lot of players have been waiting.

“That is why you have a good squad and that’s what we have built to buy the players.

“Whoever does get the chance to play hopefully they can take their chance as everyone is fighting for the shirt.”

Balogun, 31, has only featured once this season for Albion.

He played the full 90 minutes back in August in the 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup first round.

Since then, the Nigeria international has found it difficult to get into the squad with the competition from Duffy, Webster, Dunk and Dan Burn.

Albion have the option of using Burn as a left-sided centre-back with Gaetan Bong or, if fit, Bernardo, operating at left-back.
