N’Zogbia adds to Villa injury problems

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has confirmed winger Charles N'Zogbia is facing a month out of action with a knee injury suffered on the training ground.

N'Zogbia is to see a specialist in his native France to try and assess the extent of the setback suffered in a collision with midfielder Gary Gardner last week.

McLeish said: "Charles is going to get specialist attention in Paris. We've just got to see if his knee ligament is going to take much longer (to heal).

"But we think it's a medial knee ligament problem, maybe three or four weeks out.

"It happened in a training ground collision with Gary Gardner. They banged knees together and Charles kind of opened his knee up a little bit."
