Makoun starts Villa ban

25 February 2011 02:00
Aston Villa's January signing Jean Makoun will start a three-game ban and be unavailable for the Barclays Premier League home clash with Blackburn after his red card against Blackpool two weeks ago. Skipper Stiliyan Petrov, Barry Bannan and Michael Bradley, another of manager Gerard Houllier's transfer window captures, will be in contention to replace Makoun. Left-back Nathan Baker will be available after completing a three-game suspension but central defender Carlos Cuellar is ruled out with the hamstring injury suffered at Bloomfield Road.
