Leicester captain Paddy McCarthy will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his shoulder.
The defender, 23, dislocated it in a training ground accident before the 1-1 draw against Luton earlier this month.
Manager Rob Kelly said: "The operation went well, but he won't play again this season. That's disappointing because he is a leader on and off the pitch.
"But the most important thing is that he now gets himself right and is ready for the start of next season."
