Aston Villa skipper Vlaar still under injury cloud

Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar is in doubt for this week's West Midlands derby with West Bromwich Albion.

The Dutch defender is again available after serving a suspension but may not get up for the Villa Park meeting as he battles a calf problem.

"Ron is back from suspension, but he's struggling with a calf. So it is going to be a late shout on Ron," said Villa boss Tim Sherwood.

Vlaar returned to action in February after missing six weeks because of a knee injury before he was sent off in the 2-1 home loss to Stoke City on February 21.
