Aston Villa have been boosted by Craig Gardner’s return to training, and he may feature before the season’s end. Gardner has been absent from the last three matches with a thigh strain sustained on international duty with England Under-21s.
He is unlikely to be fit in time for the Birmingham derby at the weekend but is likely to feature in Martin O’Neill’s plans in the near future.
“He trained on Monday – that was his first day back,” O’Neill told the club’s official website.
