PREVIEW: MIDWEEK ENGLISH ACTION
Brad Guzan will get another chance to best Blackburn as the two clubs take the field against each other on Wednesday for the third time this month.
Aston Villa have bested Blackburn on both occasions, boasting a 4-1 score line after an FA Cup and Carling Cup victories. The home team bring a 1-0 victory into the match, but will surely be looking for a win to accompany them after a disappointing 0-0 draw with West Ham over the weekend.
Wilfred Bouma is out with an ankle injury, while Curtis Davies has fully recovered from his shoulder surgery. Guillermo Franco is out with a hamstring problem, while Carlton Cole is still out with a knee injury. Danny Gabbidon and Kieron Dyer are both out with hamstring injuries, while Zavon Hines and Calum Davenport join Luis Boa Morte on the sidelines aswell.
El-Hadj Diouf is still out after receiving a red card, while Vince Grella and Jason Roberts are on the sidelines through a thigh and knee injury, respectively. Lars Jacobsen is the last injury worry, ruled out with a thigh muscle strain.
Jemal Johnson will hope to make the bench for Milton Keynes Dons against Southampton in the Johnstone Paint Trophy.
Mike Grella will hope to take the field in Leeds clash with Carlisle in the Johnstone Paint Trophy.
Frank Simek will look to make the bench again when Sheffield Wednesday faces off against Blackpool.
