Agbonlahor a doubt for Wolves clash

Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier has revealed Gabriel Agbonlahor is facing a battle to be fit for Sunday's derby clash at Wolves.[LNB] Agbonlahor was substituted during the first half of last night's Carling Cup win over Blackburn because of problems with his calves.[LNB]But Houllier is hoping the problem is not overly serious.[LNB]He said: "Will Agbonlahor be fit for Sunday? I don't know. I'll tell you today or tomorrow.[LNB]"The most reassuring thing he said was that it is the two calves that he felt at the same time.[LNB]"If it is one calf, you might think it is a possible tear but it is the two calves so probably it involves cramp or fatigue.[LNB]"Gabby said that he had that during the home Europa League game with Rapid Vienna and then could play the following game."[LNB]Agbonlahor missed the first three games of the campaign with a calf problem.[LNB]Central defender Ciaran Clark suffered a dead leg against Blackburn although he would be unlikely to start against Wolves with the rested James Collins set to return.[LNB]Houllier said: "It's a dead leg, exactly what Stephen Ireland had on Tuesday in training. I am collecting them at the moment![LNB]"It is a good sign because it shows we train as we play."[LNB]Collins is set to be partnered by Carlos Cuellar against Wolves with Richard Dunne unlikely to have recovered from a knee problem.
