Collins sidelined for Villa23/04/2012 - 13:24:28
Aston Villa central defender James Collins has been ruled out of tomorrow’s home Barclays Premier League clash against Bolton with a groin injury suffered during Saturday’s goalless draw with Sunderland.
Right-back Alan Hutton is poised to return to the starting line-up with Carlos Cuellar switching into the centre of the defence to partner Nathan Baker.
Villa will give a late fitness test to striker and current skipper Gabriel Agbonlahor, who suffered a shoulder setback against the Black Cats.
If he is ruled out, Emile Heskey is on stand-by to replace him with Cuellar taking over the armband.
Provisional squad: Given, Guzan, Hutton, Lichaj, Cuellar, Herd, Baker, Bannan, Clark, Gardner, Warnock, Ireland, N’Zogbia, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Weimann, Marshall, Johnson, Stevens, Delfouneso, Albrighton.
