Aston Villa v Sheff Wed preview
Last Updated: 03/11/17 3:05pm
Jack Grealish could make his first Aston Villa appearance of the season after recovering from a freak kidney injury.
The midfielder has been out since suffering the problem after a collision during a pre-season friendly against Watford but he has now played three times for the under-23s.

Striker Jonathan Kodjia remains a doubt with an ankle injury - although it is not bad as first feared - while Gabriel Agbonlahor has a calf tear. Henri Lansbury (knee) also played for Villa's under-23s on Monday to step up his comeback from injury.
Sheffield Wednesday defender Daniel Pudil is a major doubt due to a hamstring injury, sustained in last week's home draw with Barnsley. Left-back Pudil was replaced by Morgan Fox as he sat out the midweek win against Millwall and might not be risked.
Head coach Carlos Carvalhal has no new injury or suspension concerns as the Owls chase back-to-back league wins for only the second time this season. Midfielder Sam Hutchinson, striker Fernando Forestieri (both knee) and winger George Boyd (shoulder) remain sidelined.
Aston Villa have won all five home meetings with the Owls in the second tier, winning 2-0 at Villa Park last season.
Sheffield Wednesday have lost six of their last seven league matches against Villa, winning the other on the opening day of last season.
Steve Bruce has won eight of his 12 managerial meetings with Wednesday (D3 L1), including the 2016 Championship play-off final with Hull at Wembley.
Jordan Rhodes ended a run of 24 league matches (including play-offs) without a goal in the last match against Millwall - Rhodes hasn't scored in back to back league games since April 2016.
Jonathan Kodjia has scored three goals in his last two league matches against the Owls, including a brace at Villa Park last season.
Sheffield Wednesday haven't lost four consecutive away league matches since April 2014.
It's hard to call this one. Sheffield Wednesday got back to winning ways in midweek but every time they do get a victory it seems to be followed quickly by another poor run, and that's why they find themselves in mid-table at the start of November.
Aston Villa, meanwhile, will be content with their draw at Birmingham and got a great win at Preston on Wednesday night, but it's been a tough week and I feel like this will be a draw.
Prutton predicts: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
