Aston Villa midfielder Chris Herd is facing another month out of action with an ankle ligament problem, manager Alex McLeish has confirmed.

The Australian had established himself in the side for the first time with a seven-game run before suffering the setback in early December.

McLeish admits the injury is "slightly more long term" than had been originally envisaged, and said: "Chris has got the protective boot on again and it depends how it feels when he takes it off. That's going to be the key."
