Carew fit to face Hull

Carew fit to face Hull

Aston Villa striker John Carew is poised to return for tomorrow’s clash with Hull at Villa Park.

The Norwegian international missed the Carling Cup quarter-final victory over Portsmouth at Fratton Park in midweek with a hamstring strain.

Carew must wait to see whether he regains his starting spot after a resurgent Emile Heskey has netted twice in the past three games.

Central defender James Collins is again ruled out with a calf problem and Carlos Cuellar will again partner Richard Dunne at the heart of the back four.

Villa (from): Friedel, Guzan, Luke Young, Cuellar, Dunne, Warnock, Milner, Downing, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Sidwell, Delph, Gardner, Ashley Young, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Carew, Delfouneso, Beye, Clark.
