Aston Villa's Albert Adomah, Jack Grealish and Ahmed Elmohamady are all doubts for the Sky Bet Championship home clash with Preston on Tuesday.

Adomah and Grealish missed Saturday's 2-0 loss at Fulham because of hamstring and calf problems respectively, while Elmohamady came off injured at half-time.

Andre Green remains sidelined by a hamstring issue of his own, while Jonathan Kodjia (ankle) and Jed Steer (shoulder) are also still unavailable.

The fit-again Gabriel Agbonlahor could make his return to the matchday squad as third-placed Villa look to bounce back from a result at the weekend that halted a run of seven successive league wins.

Seventh-placed Preston will be without the suspended John Welsh but welcome back Greg Cunningham and Ben Pearson following their respective bans.

Welsh is ruled out for one game following his sending off against Wolves on Saturday.

Cunningham was banned for that contest having been shown red a week earlier at Brentford, while Pearson has been absent for both of the last two matches after picking up a 10th yellow card of the season.

Boss Alex Neil has said "a couple of players have knocks" that will need to be assessed, while Paul Gallagher and Tom Clarke both sat out the Wolves game because of fitness issues.
