Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor has not featured for the club since the beginning of September in the game against Brentford. The striker has only just returned to full training recently after three months on the sidelines due to calf injury.
Coach Steve Bruce hopes the star returns to action this festive season to help out. The club is without Jonathan Kodija, who has been sidelined for the rest of the season due to ankle issues. Rushian Hepburn-Murphy and Scott Hogan are also sidelined due to knee and stomach issues respectively.
