|Gabby scored and drew a penalty in last year's SCD matches. |
We could use him right about now
After a disappointing loss to Sunderland in which Villa scored the only goal, and a more-exciting-than-it-needed-to-be Carling Cup win over Burnley, Villa open the doors of Villa Park to their cross-city rivals for the latest installment of the Second City Derby. Villa swept both legs of the derby last year, both by 1-0 scorelines, with Gabby Agbonlahor a big figure. He'll miss out this match through injury, as will Luke Young and Stiliyan Petrov (injured at the weekend against Sunderland). Marc Albrighton, meanwhile, will miss through red card suspension after he was sent off against Burnley. For the Clowns down the road, Cameron Jerome and James McFadden will miss, while former Villa players Craig Gardner, Liam Ridgewell, Keith Fahey and Kevin Phillips should figure in the squad.
The Capital Villans will be avoiding the score during the match, and touching down at Fado for their 11:30 delayed showing. See you there!
