Villa are assessing the fitness of Scott Hogan ahead of Fridays trip to Bristol City with the striker nearing a long-awaited return.

Hogan has been back in training for nearly a fortnight after recovering from the groin injury which forced him to miss all of pre-season and the start of the Championship campaign.

Fellow forward Keinan Davis is also back in training, though at an earlier stage of his recovery than Hogan. The 20-year-old, who enjoyed a breakthrough season last term, had also been suffering with a groin problem.

They are set to be greeted by the biggest crowd of the season to date at Ashton Gate, with the Robins yesterday reporting ticket sales of more than 23,000, with Villas allocation of 3,440 sold out.
