Reo-Coker did not feature against Portsmouth last weekend or Cardiff in the Carling Cup in midweek after a training ground bust-up with manager Martin O'Neill.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell is again ruled out with a thigh strain but winger Ashley Young (calf) and striker Emile Heskey (ankle) are expected to be fit to play.

Stephen Warnock returns to Blackburn for the first time since making the switch to Villa shortly before the summer transfer window closed.

Villa (from): Friedel, Guzan, Shorey, Beye, Cuellar, Warnock, Gardner, Collins, Dunne, Milner, Delph, Petrov, Reo-Coker, Young, Heskey, Carew, Agbonlahor, Albrighton, Delfouneso, Clark.
