Villa sweating over Petrov fitness

23 February 2010 01:49
The Bulgaria international, whose late goal at Selhurst Park earned Villa a replay, has picked up a virus and had to be sent home from training.

Manager Martin O'Neill has better news on the selection front from striker Gabriel Agbonlahor and central defender James Collins. Agbonlahor was forced off with a calf problem during Villa's 5-2 win against Burnley on Sunday but he has responded well to treatment and is fit.

Collins, who needed stitches in a head wound after a clash of heads against Burnley, is also available.

Villa (from): Friedel, Cuellar, Warnock, Collins, Dunne, Luke Young, Downing, Milner, Petrov, Ashley Young, Heskey, Agbonlahor, Carew, Sidwell, Delfouneso, Davies, Delph, Beye, Guzan.
