Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the home Barclays Premier League clash with Sunderland tomorrow evening.
Houllier is considering whether to keep faith with the side which earned an impressive 3-3 draw with champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Youngster Ciaran Clark is likely to keep his place at left-back in place of the axed England defender Stephen Warnock after scoring a last-gasp equaliser.
Midfielder Fabian Delph and right-back Luke Young are still sidelined with knee problems.
Villa (provisional squad): Friedel, Cuellar, Dunne, Collins, Clark, Downing, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Ashley Young, Agbonlahor, Heskey, Marshall, Albrighton, Pires, Delfouneso, Bannan, Lichaj, Herd, Hogg, Warnock.
