Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is set to return to the side for Saturday's Premier League home clash with West Ham.
Agbonlahor has missed the last two games with a foot injury suffered after tumbling over an advertising hoarding in last month's draw at Liverpool.
But manager Paul Lambert is without Ron Vlaar after the centre-back picked up a hamstring problem in the closing stages of last week's 2-1 loss at Everton.
West Ham are set to be without suspended striker Andy Carroll at Villa Park.
Italian duo Antonio Nocerino and Marco Borriello could feature following their loan moves.
Full-back Joey O'Brien (shoulder), midfielders Joe Cole (groin) and Mohamed Diame (knee) remain out.
Aston Villa squad: Guzan, Steer, Clark, Baker, Luna, Bertrand, Lowton, Bacuna, El Ahmadi, Albrighton, Westwood, Delph, Sylla, Holt, Gardner, Tonev, Helenius, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery.
Provisional Squad: Adrian, Demel, Tomkins, McCartney, Collins, Downing, Noble, Jarvis, Taylor, Nolan, Cole, Jaaskelainen, Borriello, Johnson, Morrison, Nocerino, Reid, Vaz Te.
