Key duo doubtful for Palace date
Petrov and Agbonlahor suffered ankle and leg injuries respectively during the midweek home Premier League draw with Manchester United and are regarded as "doubtful" by Villa boss Martin O'Neill. Striker Emile Heskey (groin) and left-back Stephen Warnock (shin) have been able to resume running with no ill-effects but O'Neill will make a late check on whether they can feature against Neil Warnock's side. O'Neill has indicated he will again make changes for the competition and the likes of Brad Guzan, Nathan Delfouneso, Steve Sidwell, Curtis Davies and Habib Beye could come into the equation to start. Kick-off 3.45pm. Villa (from): Friedel, Guzan, Cuellar, Beye, Collins, Dunne, Davies, Warnock, Luke Young, Ashley Young, Milner, Petrov, Downing, Delph, Sidwell, Salifou, Carew, Heskey, Agbonlahor, Delfouneso.
