Aston Villa team news: John McGinn suspended for Norwich clash

Aston Villa will be looking to make two wins from two under Dean Smith as they head to Carrow Road and face Norwich City on Tuesday night.

The Villans recorded their first win under their new manager in his first game in charge at the weekend against Swansea City and he will want to see more of the same.

With the way the Championship is currently unfolding, a victory could help to take the Villa Park outfit within touching distance of the playoffs.

However, the Canaries have been playing well and, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, Smith’s side could find the trip to the east of England tougher than originally planned.

John McGinn has been ruled out of the game through suspension after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Swansea.

The Verdict:

Aston Villa will have been buoyed by the victory over Swansea at the weekend and will have built some confidence heading into their game.

However, John McGinn’s absence will come as a huge blow to the side’s chances of picking up a victory against the Canaries.

The former Hibernian midfielder has been a standout for the Villans this season and his absence will likely be felt by Smith’s side.
