ASTON VILLA v West Brom: James Collins and Barry Bannan poised for return to the side

21 October 2011 10:07
Aston Villa central defender James Collins is back in contention for Saturday's Barclays Premier League derby with West Brom at Villa Park.

Collins returned to training this week after missing the 4-1 setback at Manchester City - Villa's first league defeat of the season - with foot and groin problems.

Minor setback: Collins will return after missing his first match of the season

Villa boss Alex McLeish may recall midfielder Barry Bannan after leaving him out of the starting line-up at City following his exertions with Scotland.

Striker Nathan Delfouneso (hamstring) and on-loan Jermaine Jenas (achilles) are still ruled out.

Provisional squad: Given, Guzan, Hutton, Collins, Dunne, Clark, Warnock, Beye, Herd, Delph, Petrov, Ireland, Bannan, Albrighton, Gardner, Bent, Heskey, Agbonlahor, N'Zogbia, Weimann.
