Villa's heaping injury woes concerning McLeish in drop battle

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish admits mounting injuries are worrying him in their relegation fight.

Charles N'Zogbia is now out for a month.

McLeish said: "He's going to get specialist attention in Paris.

"We've just got to see if his knee ligament is going to take much longer.

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

"Alan Hutton came off at Arsenal with a calf injury and could be out for three weeks.

"James Collins signalled that his hamstring was tight. We will have to wait and see."
