Leicester chairman Milan Mandaric says caretaker boss Nigel Worthington is in the frame for the permanent post.
Worthington has impressed Mandaric in his few games in charge
Worthington was put in charge until the end of the season following Rob Kelly's dismissal earlier this month.
Mandaric told the Leicester Mercury: "He has made a difference and he will be considered.
"The response he's had from the players has been good in a short space of time, if we keep doing well, he would have a good chance of the job."
