Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is a serious doubt ahead of his side’s Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan at the JJB Stadium on Sunday.
Agbonlahor sustained cuts to his knees following an injury-time collision with Ajax goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer in Thursday night’s 2-1 UEFA Cup Group F victory over the Dutch giants.
Agbonlahor today missed training, and will now be further assessed tomorrow in the hope there is no long-term damage. Fellow striker John Carew should return to the starting line-up after missing the clash with Ajax through illness.
Team (from): Friedel, L Young, Davies, Cuellar, Knight, Laursen, Shorey, Milner, Barry, Petrov, Reo-Coker, A Young, Gardner, Carew, Agbonlahor, Harewood, Guzan, Sidwell, Routledge, Osbourne.
