Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish admits it is unlikely midfielder Fabian Delph will play again this season after suffering an ankle injury during his loan spell at Leeds.
Delph saw a specialist on Tuesday to confirm his worst fears that he is facing another lengthy spell on the sidelines. He suffered the latest in a long line of injury blows during last Tuesday's npower Championship clash with Coventry.
McLeish said: "Delph is not fit. I don't know if he will play again this season but he's rolled his ankle sufficiently enough to rule him out (for some time)."
