Aston Villa vs Queens Park Rangers

Match Preview
Gabby Agbonlahor still missing for Aston Villa

Gabby Agbonlahor is still unlikely to feature for Aston Villa against QPR as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

The forward has been out since January and boss Steve Bruce is not planning to rush him back after he returned to training last week.

Rushian Hepburn-Murphy (ankle) has also made a comeback to training but will not be considered yet.

Jack Grealish is fit after a knee issue but was an unused substitute in Saturday's 2-0 win over Norwich.

Massimo Luongo should return to the QPR squad.

The midfielder missed Friday night's 1-0 defeat at Derby having only returned from international duty with Australia that morning.

Joel Lynch could also be restored at the back while fellow defender Jack Robinson is fit after a hamstring injury.

But midfielder Ravel Morrison is doubtful with a back problem and winger Kazenga LuaLua is battling back to fitness after an ankle injury.
