Many clubs go through a period where injury strikes their squad, which can be detrimental to their objectives for the season.
In this case, Aston Villa are currently going through that turmoil and it has occurred at a dangerous period as they try to earn promotion back to the Premier League.
As it stands, Steve Bruce’s side are third in the Championship, four points adrift of the top two after failing to win their last two fixtures.
This weekend, the Midlands outfit will take on Sheffield Wednesday on away soil, but they have received some bad news ahead of the contest.
It appears that Lewis Grabban and Axel Tuanzebe could be added to the growing injury list.
Ahmed Elmohamady, Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah are currently on the treatment table.

💬 @Grabbs22 will be assessed today due to a groin issue – but manager Steve Bruce is hopeful of having the striker available this weekend

Understandably, fans were left exasperated by the latest injury update, particularly as it seems as though this weekend’s match could come too soon for Grealish and Adomah.
Once 1 gets injured 20 more follow

Surely something isn’t going right down there because we have injury after injury and other teams don’t seem to have this many in 1 go
