Villa are set to assess the fitness of Richard Dunne ahead of our FA Cup Semi clash with Chelsea after he had to withdraw from training with his achilles problem again.

Quoted on ITN news O’Neill confirmed the centre half had to sit it out but was optimistic that the big Irishman would be fit for the weekend regardless.

‘Dunne has had a bit of a setback and he came out of training this morning.’

He described Dunne as feeling a bit sore and confirmed it was the same achilles niggle that has plagued the player lately and it was a matter of ‘nursing’ it some more.

‘It has been troublesome for a while but he definitely will want to play.’

In other achilles injury news Milner is back in training and progressing well after being finally rested against Bolton last week.

So team prediction is basically, as you’d expect at the moment.
