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

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.
