Injury update: Jedinak, Bree, Taylor, Agbonlahor

Pre-match quiz: Newcastle v Villa Bruce: I am the man for this job – I will turn it around
Injury update: Jedinak, Bree, Taylor, Agbonlahor

Mile Jedinak looks set to be back available for the trip to Newcastle.

We face the Tyneside outfit on Monday, with an 8pm kick-off.

Midfielder Jedinak has missed the last five games – against Preston, Brentford, Nottingham Forest, Ipswich Town and Barnsley.

But manager Steve Bruce confirmed that the Aussie will be back in training on Friday ahead of next week’s encounter.

In other injury news, left-back Neil Taylor will have a fitness test on Saturday to see if he makes the game, after suffering a badly cut ankle in the build-up to the Tykes clash.

James Bree looks like missing out after failing to recover from his knee problem.

Gabriel Agbonlahor, suffering with a hamstring issue, will also be absent.
