Aston Villa are without the suspended Tyrone Mings for the visit of Bristol City.
The defender was sent off in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Rotherham and serves a one-game ban.
The on-loan Bournemouth man’s absence adds to Villa’s defensive headache with Tommy Elphick (foot) and Kortney Hause (hip) both struggling.
James Chester has also been battling a swollen knee but, like Elphick, has returned to training.
Bristol City could be unchanged when they head to Villa Park.
Callum O’Dowda (knee) is nearing a return to fitness and Korey Smith may be available after missing the 3-2 win over West Brom on Tuesday.
The midfielder has only just returned from a serious knee injury and was taken off in the closing stages of the win at Middlesbrough as a precaution.
Goalkeeper Frank Fielding is expected to be out for the rest of the season with the hand injury he suffered in February.
