Aston Villa fans received some mixed injury news on in Friday morning’s pre-match press conference.
Steve Bruce confirmed that Aston Villa star Jack Grealish would not be fit to play in Saturday’s game against QPR at Villa Park, and fans are gutted.

However, there was some good news as it was also confirmed that Grealish could be available in time for Tuesday’s game against Sunderland.
Aston Villa fans know how important Grealish is to their promotion hopes.
After a run of seven straight wins, they’ve only managed one win in the last three while the 22-year-old has been sidelined.
Fans are gutted that he won’t be available for Saturday’s game with one saying it wouldn’t be so bad if the fixture was a victim of the bad weather.
However, fans are also happy that he’s back for a crucial run of fixtures that includes Sunderland on Tuesday and, more importantly, Wolves next Saturday.
Here are the best reactions from fans to the confirmed injury news:
Basically the only bad injury news was Grealish.

With or without Grealish , we should be winning tomorrow, if we don't it'll be down complacency #avfc

As a Jack Grealish season ticket holder, it's always frustrating to go to Jack Grealish games and for Jack Grealish not to be playing.

Grealish will be a huge miss once again, but Albert coming back is a bonus, could definitely do with him back in the side. Both coming back at just the right time with our upcoming fixtures. #AVFC

I don’t want it to happen and I don’t think it will, but if the game gets postponed tomorrow, it won’t be a bad thing to save a game for when we have Grealish Adomah and maybe Kodjia back!
