Just a few brief injury notes.
According to Sky Sports Marlon Harewood, remember him? - he is Villa's Number 9 if you don't! - has apparently broken a metatarsal in training and will be out of action for around 3 months.
That will put pay to a loan move back to Newcastle United or permanent move to a few clubs linked including Hull and the bizarre link to a return to his former club West Ham.
Meanwhile Stephen Warnock came off against Brighton & Hove Albion with a shin injury and might not be fit in time for our Wednesday night game v Arsenal.
MON told the press that Warnock has felt sore for a while but wanted to play in the FA Cup and with back up Nicky Shorey on loan to Forest, was given the chance.
'He will try and rest up for a day or two and see how he is for Wednesday.'
On Marc Albrighton who also limped out of the BHA game on Saturday after setting up the first goal, he told the Birmingham Mail that the medical team will asses the midfielder today adding:
'He’s walking much better at the moment, so we’re not exactly sure.'
Apparently he took a knock so hopefully it will be nothing too serious.
Aston Villa have a few players out on loan so far this season, so here's an update following on from the last month.
Gordon Cowans' Under 21 side hosted Burnley on Monday at Bodymoor Heath in a friendly.
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
