Aston Villa winger Adama Traore misses the FA Cup third-round match at Wycombe on Saturday and could be out for over two months after breaking his foot.
The winger limped off in the defeat at Sunderland and is not expected back until March, while Alan Hutton and Carlos Sanchez (both hamstring) are out of the Wycombe game, along with Gabriel Agbonlahor (back).
Jordan Ayew and Ashley Westwood return to the squad after serving one-match bans. Aly Cissokho made his Villa comeback against Sunderland after boss Remi Garde recalled him from a loan at Valencia and could again feature.
Wycombe are boosted by the return of both midfielder Marcus Bean and striker Paul Hayes who have recovered from ankle injuries.
46-year-old coach Barry Richardson will be on the bench for the game as goalkeeper Matt Ingram is suspended after being sent off last weekend against Morcambe.
