Targett was forced off during Villa’s 2-2 draw against Burnley last weekend with a hamstring injury, while Kodjia has had a cheekbone injury which has kept him out for the last few weeks.

However, manager Dean Smith hopes to have both players in his squad for the game at Carrow Road as the Villans, who currently sit in the relegation zone, look for only their second Premier League win of the campaign.

Speaking to the official Aston Villa website about the duo, Smith said: “Matt Targett hasn’t trained yet since the weekend. But nothing showed up on the scan in terms of a hamstring issue, which is really pleasing. However, he certainly felt something so we’ve got be very cautious with him.

“But he will start training on Wednesday ready for the Norwich game.

“Jonathan Kodjia is training fully now with the mask on so we have people coming back from injury, which is good to see.”
