Patrick Bamford has earned his first place in a matchday squad as he is named among the Norwich City substitutes to face Aston Villa this afternoon.

Alex Neil makes four changes to the Canaries side that went down 3-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in midweek for this relegation six-pointer at Villa Park.

There are two changes in the back four as Ivo Pinto and Martin Olsson drop to the bench in favour of Russell Martin and Robbie Brady.

Alexander Tettey is suspended after his yellow against Spurs and is replaced by Gary O'Neil, while Wes Hoolahan is preferred over Matt Jarvis.

Meanwhile, Remi Garde makes one change to the side that lost 2-0 at West Ham United on Tuesday, with Kieron Westwood coming in for Jordan Ayew, who is serving the first game of his three-match ban.

Aston Villa: Bunn, Richards, Okore, Lescott, Cissokho, Bacuna, Gana, Westwood, Veretout, Gil, Agbonlahor
