Collins sidelined for Villa

Mon, 23 Apr 13:21:06 2012

Aston Villa central defender James Collins has been ruled out of the home Barclays Premier League clash against Bolton with a groin injury suffered during Saturday's goalless draw with Sunderland.

Right-back Alan Hutton is poised to return to the starting line-up with Carlos Cuellar switching into the centre of the defence to partner Nathan Baker.

Villa will give a late fitness test to striker and current skipper Gabriel Agbonlahor, who suffered a shoulder setback against the Black Cats.

If he is ruled out, Emile Heskey is on stand-by to replace him with Cuellar taking over the armband.
