Aston Villa could make three changes to the team that beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 over the weekend as they take on relegation-threatened Rotherham on Wednesday night.

Centre-back Axel Tuanzebe could make his first start since December, while senior duo Conor Hourihane and Albert Adomah could also back into the fold.

Wolves loanee Kortney Hause, who went off injured in the second half during that win against Wednesday, could be one of three players to make way, while Andre Green and Glenn Whelan could be the other two players potentially missing out.

Given the fact that there are three games to be played in seven days, Whelan could make way in order to add a fresh pair of legs to the midfield, while Adomah could be rewarded for his stoppage-time winner on Saturday.

If Manchester United loanee Tuanzebe does start then he would add balance to Villa’s backline and show how much depth in quality the team has.

Dean Smith’s side are looking for their seventh win on the bounce in the league and another three points at the New York Stadium will only enhance their chances of finishing in the top-six.

At this moment in time, they are sitting sixth in the league and could leapfrog Bristol City in fifth place with the two set to meet at Villa Park at the weekend.
