McLeish has no doubts about duo

Published Add your comment

Alex McLeish is content to put his faith in two players out of contract this summer in striker Emile Heskey and defender Carlos Cuellar for his side's vital Barclays Premier League clash with Bolton.

Striker Heskey, 34, is poised to lead the attack at Villa Park if captain Gabriel Agbonlahor fails to recover from a shoulder problem. Cuellar is required to fill the gap at the back left by the absence of central defender James Collins through a groin problem.

McLeish said: "It depends on Gabby, but Emile would come right into the thinking for tonight. He's admired by all his team-mates... It's the same scenario with someone like Carlos. The thing about guys like that is that they have total commitment to any particular task that they have to undertake."
