Gabriel Agbonlahor out again for Aston Villa with illness

Gabriel Agbonlahor will miss Aston Villa's do-or-die match against Bournemouth on Saturday as he is suffering with a virus.

Aston Villa caretaker manager Eric Black has revealed that the club will be without Gabriel Agbonlahor again this weekend because of a virus.

The striker was in line to be available for the visit of Bournemouth tomorrow after missing the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea last weekend because of his conduct on a recent trip to Dubai.

However, Agbonlahor rang the club this morning saying that he was suffering from a virus. He has been asked to report in and see the club doctor.

Elsewhere for lowly Villa, Libor Kozak is back in contention after more than two months out with a fractured ankle, while Ciaran Clark, Adama Traore and Jack Grealish are also fit again.

Villa are 15 points from safety at the foot of the table and will be relegated for the first time in the Premier League era if they do not match Norwich City's result at Crystal Palace this weekend.
