Baros faces fitness test

Aston Villa have a doubt over striker Milan Baros for tomorrow’s Barclays Premiership trip to Middlesbrough.

The Czech Republic international has a tight hamstring following Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea and will require a late fitness test – Luke Moore, who came off the bench to grab Villa’s equaliser against the leaders, is challenging Juan Pablo Angel to take over from Baros.

Jlloyd Samuel will continue at left-back with Wilfred Bouma still sidelined by a knee problem.

Provisional squad: Sorensen, Taylor, Hughes, Delaney, Mellberg, Ridgewell, Samuel, McCann, Milner, Davis, Angel, Baros, Phillips, Moore, Gardner, Whittingham, Hendrie, De La Cruz.
