Published Add your comment

Aston Villa midfielder Craig Gardner is facing up to three weeks out with a thigh strain.

Gardner suffered the setback during the first half of England Under-21s´ friendly international with Poland at Molineux on Tuesday.

He has been filling in primarily as an emergency right-back for Villa in the absence of Olof Mellberg, who is available again for Saturday´s Barclays Premier League match away to leaders Manchester United.
