Winger Albrighton set to miss start of season with foot injury

Marc Albrighton looks set to miss the first six to eight weeks of the new season with a foot injury.

The Tamworth-born winger suffered a broken metatarsal in the first week of pre-season training and is likely to be on the sidelines until October.

The injury has ruled Albrighton out of Villa's entire pre-season programme so far.

The 22-year-old has been wearing a protective boot on the affected foot.

Albrighton joins Gabby Agbonlahor and Richard Dunne on Villa's casualty list going into the new campaign.

Agbonlahor is out for around a month with a knee problem sustained on the USA tour.

Dunne will be out of action for around six weeks having undergone a procedure on a groin injury.
