Aston Villa v Norwich City Preview


Aston Villa will welcome Norwich City to Villa Park tomorrow as the Championship returns following the International break.

Steve Bruce will be hoping £4million signing Mile Jedinak will be fit after only returning on Thursday from International duty with Australia.

The home side has some good news on the injury front with both Jack Grealish and Nathan Baker both fit and available for selection. Scott Hogan and Henri Lansbury are also available following their return at Wigan.

Gabriel Agbonlahor and Andre Green have both returned to training but it is thought that this game will come too early for either of them.

The visitors will be without former Aston Villa transfer target Wes Hoolahan, Louis Thompson and defender Mitchell Dijks (suspension). Former West Bromwich midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu could make a return.

Caretaker manager Alan Irvine is likely to start both Nelson Oliveira and Graham Dorrans on the bench as they step up their return from injury lay-offs.
