Striker John Carew has been included in the Aston Villa
squad for tomorrow's home Barclays Premier League game with Wigan
The Norwegian international has been out of action for nearly three months with a back problem but came through a friendly against Derby in midweek with noill-effects.
Fellow forward Emile Heskey will make his home debut against his former club following a £3.5million move last week, Craig Gardner should be fit after picking up an ankle knock in the midweek win at Portsmouth but Marlon Harewood (foot) is ruled out while Ashley Young is still suspended.
Provisional squad: Friedel, Cuellar, Knight, Davies, L Young, Gardner, Sidwell, Petrov, Barry, Milner, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Shorey, Guzan, Carew, Delfouneso, Salifou, Osbourne
