Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is hoping Charles N'Zogbia catches fire tonight against QPR.

N'Zogbia, 25, may return to the Villa side tonight after a heel injury.

And McLeish said: "We are looking for big things from Charles in a Villa shirt for this season and beyond.

"In the Chelsea game (when Villa won at Stamford Bridge) he was tremendous; running at their back four and for Stephen Ireland's equaliser and in general he played a good team game as well as his attacking skills.

"I've not sat him down and asked him but he knows the standards that are expected. He's aware the Villa fans are looking for 9/10 and 10/10 from the players that make the difference and Charles is one of those who can make a difference.

"I'm sure he is very determined as an individual to make his mark at Aston Villa.

"Charles is capable of greater things; there is no doubt about that. I am sure he will show everybody at this club what he can do. Goals and assists were his trademark at Wigan and at Newcastle and that should be evidence for Charles that he has that in his locker."
