Bent was ruled out of England’s postponed friendly with the Netherlands this week with a shoulder problem.
Villa boss Alex McLeish will enjoy a healthy team for his first competitive game in charge.
“At this moment there are no injuries to shout about,” McLeish said. “We have almost everyone available. There is no-one on the treatment table.”
The 27-year-old has scored nine goals in 16 appearances since joining Villa from Sunderland in January.
