Ross McCormack: Joined Forest on loan

Forwards Ross McCormack and Gabriel Agbonlahor are doubtful for Aston Villa’s Championship clash with Cardiff with ankle knocks.

Jack Grealish could start after an impressive showing as a substitute at Brighton.

Tommy Elphick and Mile Jedinak will hope to avoid a fifth yellow card of the season which would result in an automatic one-match ban.

Micah Richards remains out with a calf problem and Ritchie de Laet is out for the season with a knee injury.

Cardiff defender Joe Bennett is set to take on his former club for the first time.

Bennett left Villa Park in August and has established himself at left-back in recent weeks after missing the start of the season through injury.

Cardiff have been hit by a sickness bug this week but Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock hopes to name the same side which beat Huddersfield 3-2.

Wales defender Jazz Richards, who has yet to play under Warnock, remains out with a foot injury.
