Villa could be without key defender for Chelsea clash

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne has given his side an injury scare ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea.

Dunne was forced to withdraw from training on Thursday morning with a sore Achilles. The former Manchester City player has been troubled by the problem in recent weeks and Villa could ill-afford to be without his experience for the Wembley meeting with Carlo Ancelotti's side.

However, midfielder James Milner has resumed training after being rested for the game at Bolton last week, also with an Achilles problem.
