Delfouneso set to miss City game

Delfouneso, who has provided back-up for Darren Bent, Emile Heskey

and Andy Weimann, suffered the injury during the win over Iceland

last week. Villa boss Alex McLeish confirmed: “Nathan picked up a

wee hamstring injury with England and it will probably keep him out

of the weekend game. “We don’t think it is too bad, a grade one

tear, which usually leads to a quick recovery. “It is a shame

because he is one of the young boys vying for a place and his pace

can cause real problems. The Man City game could have been one for

him.”
