Delfouneso set to miss City game

Last updated : 13 October 2011

Delfouneso, who has provided back-up for Darren Bent, Emile Heskey and Andy Weimann, suffered the injury during the win over Iceland last week.

Villa boss Alex McLeish confirmed: "Nathan picked up a wee hamstring injury with England and it will probably keep him out of the weekend game."

He added: "We don't think it is too bad, a grade one tear, which usually leads to a quick recovery.

"It is a shame because he is one of the young boys vying for a place and his pace can cause real problems. The Man City game could have been one for him."
