Defenders Tommy Elphick and Micah Richards are both expected to miss Aston Villa's Sky Bet Championship clash at home to Fulham.

New Villa boss Steve Bruce thinks both Elphick and Richards could miss two to three weeks as both have suffered calf problems.

Midfielder Jack Grealish will miss the Villa Park clash as he serves the second game of a three-match ban.

Bruce will also weigh up whether to hand striker Jordan Ayew a recall to the starting line-up.

Villa's defeat by Fulham in the two sides' most recent meeting in April 2014 was their first in 13 home league meetings with the Whites.

Jonathan Kodjia has scored in back-to-back league games for Villa, after a run of just one goal in his previous 11 appearances.

Tom Cairney is expected to return to the Fulham squad after missing the 2-2 draw against Norwich.

Tomas Kalas is the only injury absentee with the on-loan Chelsea defender still sidelined by a hamstring injury.

Winger Floyd Ayite is back in training after an ankle injury.

Full-back Ryan Fredericks made his first appearance of the season following an ankle problem as a sub against the Canaries and should be involved again.

Fulham have only lost once in their last eight league meetings with Villains.

There have been four penalties awarded in Fulham's last three league games - two for and two against.

Fulham striker Chris Martin has scored in consecutive league appearances after failing to score in his previous 19 games (including play-offs).

The West London side are unbeaten in their last six away league games, of which they have won three.

The last time the two sides met was April 2014 when Fulham won 2-1 at Villa.
