Mark Delaney looks unlikely to feature against Charlton after yesterday seeing a specialist about the knee injury that curtailed his involvement in the Manchester City game.
Although the Wales international was pleased with the results of a scan and has not yet been ruled out of the game it is unlikely that he will recover in time.
Delaney will have today off with the rest of the Villa squad and will have the injury reassessed tomorrow.
"The specialist confirmed that it was not as bad as everybody feared on Sunday," he said.
"We've got a rest day then I'll see how it looks on Thursday as to whether I can play on Saturday."
