Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is a big fan of young Austrian Andi Weimann.
Weimann is set for an extended chance with Darren Bent out injured.
Lambert said: "One thing about Andy Weimann is that he’s a natural finisher and his work ethic to the game is absolutely brilliant.
"So whether he’s on X amount of money, whatever, you’ll get the same out of him every single game.
"I left him out just to give him a rest from the last couple of weeks."
