Four face fitness tests ahead of Villa clash

Wednesday wait on the fitness of four players ahead of Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa.

Sam Hutchinson, Ross Wallace, Almen Abdi and Callum McManaman all face tests before Carlos Carvalhal names his side for the Villa Park clash.

Hutchinson missed the midweek game with Burton after limping off in the first-half against Norwich last Saturday, Abdi missed both matches through injury while Wallace went off during the Burton draw and McManaman was ruled out  of the same game with injury.

We go into the Villa test still in the final play-off spot on 62 points, five clear of nearest rivals Fulham, who also have a game in hand and are at Newcastle tomorrow.

Above us, Reading sit two points clear and travel to Preston on Saturday while Leeds, who are a further point ahead, entertain QPR. Third-placed Huddersfield, who are on 68 points and with a game in hand, travel to Brentford.
