Crouch injured in reserves stroll

Villa boss Graham Taylor is now waiting to hear of the extent of the injury to the England under-21 forward.

“He turned his ankle, but we can’t say yet how serious it is. We’ll have a look at it over the next 24 to 48 hours as the swelling goes down," Taylor told www.avfc.co.uk

"
Then we’ll know the full extent of the injury.”

Goals from Stephen Cooke, Hassan Kachloul, Stefan Moore and Moustapha Hadji gave the Villa second string their first win for over a month in a one-sided contest against Everton at The Bescot Stadium.
