Aston Villa have called for Andre Green to be given a chance this weekend, if Albert Adomah isn’t fit.

Adomah picked up a knock in Villa’s last match against Birmingham City, which could keep him out this weekend.

Steve Bruce’s side are set to take on Fulham on Saturday, and claret and blues fans have called for Green to be given a chance, if Adomah doesn’t make it.

If Adomah is fit he will surely start for Villa at Craven Cottage, as he has been in such good form.

Adomah scored for Bruce’s side in their 2-0 victory over Birmingham City in their most recent outing.

Green, meanwhile, has been given a limited amount of opporintuies this term, although injury has thwarted his progress.

Green is on the way back from an injury problem himself, and even he is not guaranteed to be fit this weekend. 

Bruce has tended to go for experience over youth this term, which has left Green on the bench regularly, even when he has been available.

The 19-year-old has made just five Championship appearances, and has one goal to his name.
