Jones passed fit for Villa clash

BY foxsports • September 10, 2010

Jones injured an ankle on the opening day of the season against Wolves and, after missed the home game against Tottenham before returning at Chelsea. The Trinidad and Tobago international was not 100% at Stamford Bridge but he proved his fitness in a midweek friendly match against Crewe and will start against Villa. Goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is also hopeful of starting after missing Denmark's Euro 2012 qualifier on Tuesday because of an infection in an elbow problem he sustained against Wolves. Transfer deadline day signings Eidur Gudjohnsen, Jermaine Pennant and Marc Wilson are all vying for starts but may have to settle for a place on the bench. Potters (from): Sorensen, Huth, Faye, Collins, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Whelan, Delap, Pugh, Etherington, Whitehead, Walters, Jones, Fuller, Pennant, Gudjohnsen, Tuncay, Wilson, Higginbotham, Begovic.
