Both sides are in desperate need of a win when Aston Villa host Norwich City at Villa Park in the Premier League on Saturday.
Villa have won just twice all season and are currently rooted to the foot of the table with just 12 points from 24 games.
The Canaries have won six games this season, but have struggled for form of late and have lost all of their last four league outings.
Norwich's form sees them sitting down in 17th position, just two points clear of the relegation zone.
Villans striker Jordan Ayew serves the first game of his three-match ban for a red card in his side's defeat to West Ham United in midweek.
Libor Kozak has also been ruled out for up to a month with a fractured bone in his ankle, while Rudy Gestede and Carlos Sanchez remain out.
For Nowrich, Alex Tettey is serving a two-game ban for accumulating 10 yellow cards, while Graham Dorrans (illness) is a doubt.
Patrick Bamford is available for the first time since joining the Canaries on loan from Chelsea, while Gary O'Neil (ban) and Robbie Brady (illness) are available once again.
