Leading scorer Tammy Abraham heads in-form Aston Villa’s worries as they prepare to host Millwall.

Abraham, who has 25 goals this season, overcame a hamstring injury to face Bolton on Friday, but injured his shoulder and the knock-on effects remain to be seen.

The expected return of fellow striker Jonathan Kodjia (rib) would provide a timely boost as Villa seek a 10th win in a row.

Midfielder Ben Thompson has handed Millwall a huge fitness blow.

Thompson, who boss Neil Harris says has been his side’s best player in 2019, went off in Friday’s draw with Brentford with a hamstring injury.

Defender has been laid low with illness and it is likely he will again miss out.
