Injury update: Abraham, Tuanzebe

The Verdict: Bolton Wanderers 0-2 Aston Villa The Boss: Smith on Bolton victory, nine wins on the spin, huge away following and Millwall next up
 Injury update: Abraham, Tuanzebe

Dean Smith is hoping for good news on Tammy Abraham after the striker came off in the 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers. 

Smith confirmed that Abraham was substituted with a shoulder injury he sustained in scoring the second of the game at the University of Bolton Stadium. 

The Head Coach said it’s too early to get a comprehensive diagnosis – but admitted he doubts the striker will be fit to face Millwall on Monday. 

Smith also revealed that Axel Tuanzebe was brought off with an ankle problem. 

However, he said it “shouldn’t be too much of a worry". 

He revealed: “Tammy got a whack on the shoulder. It’s too early to diagnose. I don’t expect him to be fit for Monday, if I’m honest. Then we’re hoping it’s not too bad. 

“He was down for a while. The doctor said that he’d have to come off because he was in too much pain. 

“Axel rolled his ankle slightly. He shouldn’t be too much of a worry. But the good thing about us at the moment is the strength in depth. Mile came on and did well again.”
