Ex-Nottingham Forest midfielder Henri Lansbury will be assessed after tweaking his hamstring in Sunday’s win over Birmingham.
Forest could retain faith with Claudio Yacob in midfield after Saturday’s victory at Hull City
Aston Villa have lost one of their last 12 home league matches against Nottingham Forest a 0-2 defeat in October 1994.
Nottingham Forest haven’t lost three consecutive league games against Aston Villa since a run of four ending in March 1975.
In all competitions, Aston Villa Dean Smith has won six of his seven matches against Nottingham Forest , including a 2-1 home win with Brentford this season.
For Villa it’s mostly status quo on the injury front, with the added caveat that Albert Adomah was injured in Sunday’s win.
Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in five league games , keeping a clean sheet in each of the last three.
They last recorded four consecutive shutouts in league competition in February 2016.
Despite not being highly-regarded entering the year, the veteran-led squad is producing results.
Ex-Villan of 6 months Lewis Grabban leads Forest in scoring with ten league goals, followed by midfielder Joe Lolley on 5.
Other notable over-30-somethings receiving minutes include, Adlène Guedioura, Daniel Fox, Daryl Murphy, Michael Dawson, and goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.
Midfielder Claudio Yacob featured in Saturday’s victory over Hull City.
He was in a walking boot post-match so it’s safe to assume he won’t take part in this one, but the boot is often an early precautionary protection measure as well.
We should know more during Dean Smith’s post-match press conference.
Aston Villa Predicted XI (4-3-3): Nyland; Hutton, Tuanzebe, Chester, Taylor; Hourihane, McGinn, Grealish; Bolasie, Abraham, Kodjia.
Substitutes: Bunn, Bree, Elmohamady, Whelan, O’Hare, El Ghazi, Hogan.
Mile Jedinak is still believed to be sidelined, as is Henri Lansbury, who was forced off after 8 minutes at the weekend.
If John McGinn still can’t go, Glenn Whelan will retain his place in the starting XI.
Aston Villa have won four of their last six Championship games (L2), including each of the last three.
They last won four in a row during a seven-game streak ending in February.
With injuries, Anwar El Ghazi and Callum O’Hare stay on bench with a chance to impress late in-game.
There is one more bench spot up-for-grabs with Adomah missing. That should go to James Bree if he is fit.
