Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar a doubt for Reading meeting
Monday 26 November 2012
Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar is an injury doubt for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League bottom-three clash with Reading at Villa Park.
The central defender suffered a calf injury during Saturday's home goalless draw against Arsenal and was substituted early in the second half.
If he is ruled out, then Matt Lowton is likely to partner Ciaran Clark at the heart of the defence with Eric Lichaj being recalled at right-back.
Aston Villa (provisional squad): Guzan, Given, Lowton, Clark, Vlaar, Lichaj, Baker, Stevens, Ireland, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Bannan, Delph, Holman, Bent, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery, Weimann, Burke, Johnson, Williams.
