Aston Villa	 vs Sheffield Wed - No worries for Steve Bruce as he racks up milestone

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce has no new problems as he prepares to take charge of his 100th game for the club against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Villa emerged unscathed from a relatively routine 2-0 home win against Rotherham in midweek, when new boys Tammy Abraham and Yannick Bolasie were both on the scoresheet.

Midfielder Mile Jedinak and defender Axel Tuanzebe are vying for recalls to the Villa side.

Scott Hogan (groin) is back in training but he is not expected to feature against the Owls, while fellow striker Keinan Davis is still recovering from the groin problem he sustained during pre-season.

Sheffield Wednesday striker Steven Fletcher is pushing for a recall.

The experienced Scot came on as a substitute and scored during the 2-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest in midweek.

Sam Hutchinson has recovered from a groin injury and resumed full training this week but it sounds like Wednesday boss Jos Luhukay will resist the temptation to bring the midfielder back into the squad this weekend.

Fernando Forestieri will complete a three-match suspension, while Kieran Lee (knee) and Joost van Aken remain out injured.
