Cuellar continues his comeback

The former Rangers man made his first appearance of the campaign

when playing 45 minutes of last week’s second-team game against

Chelsea after suffering a knee injury in April. Villa assistant

boss Peter Grant said: “We are delighted Carlos is back and

available. He has put in a lot of rehab work. “He got his rewards

by playing that first 45 minutes (against Chelsea reserves) and now

he is looking to build on that. “To have someone available of

Carlos’ ability is good. He is a top man about the place and a good

player who can play in different positions along the back line.”
