Steve Bruce has confirmed to Birmingham Mail that Aston Villa attacking midfielders Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah are both unlikely to make it back for this weekend.
The creative duo have been kept out from Villa’s last two matches, and they have been badly missed.
Villa had won seven matches in a row before Grealish and Adomah were ruled out, but they have failed to win since.
And Bruce has suggested that the creative duo could be sidelined for a while yet.
He said: “If I was a betting man then I’d say they were both unlikely to make the weekend.
“We’ll see how they are I still think Saturday might be too soon.”
Bruce’s confirmation that Grealish and Adomah are still out is the worst news possible for Villa.
