Aston Villa's new signing, right-back Kyle Walker, is included in the squad for tomorrow's FA Cup third round tie with former club Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Walker has joined Villa on loan from Tottenham for the remainder of the season.
He spent the first half of the campaign on loan at QPR.
Villa striker Emile Heskey will start a three-match suspension tomorrow for his straight red card against Sunderland in mid-week.
He will also miss the derby with Birmingham at St Andrew's and the home encounter with Manchester City.
Gabriel Agbonlahor is set to switch from a wide role into the main striking role.
But defender Luke Young and midfielder Fabian Delph are still side-lined with knee injuries.
Villa (provisional squad): Friedel, Marshall, Cuellar, Walker, Collins, Dunne, Clark, Downing, Reo-Coker, Petrov, Ashley Young, Agbonlahor, Pires, Aglbrighton, Delfouneso, Bannan, Lichaj, Herd, Hogg.
