Aston Villa fans want Ross McCormack recalled and Gabriel Agbonlahor dropped

Aston Villa are due to take on Norwich City at the weekend, as they search for their first Championship victory of the season.

Aston Villa fans have urged Steve Bruce to pick Ross McCormack, rather than Gabriel Agbonlahor this weekend.

Villa boss Bruce has suggested that he is short of striking options recently, and his mood will not have been helped by an injury which Scott Hogan picked up against Reading.

Hogan is now set to miss Villa’s match against Norwich City this weekend, leaving the striking place up for grabs.

And Villa fans are eager to see McCormack given a run out, rather than Agbonlahor, who has been favoured so far this season.

McCormack was expected to leave Villa this summer, but he may still have a chance of fighting his way back into Bruce’s plans, if he is given a chance at the weekend.

Agbonlahor has actually scored this season, but he has carried a limited threat.

Bruce’s side are under huge pressure to pick up a victory against Norwich, after what has been a highly disappointing campaign to date.

Villa have failed to win any of their first three matches, leaving Bruce fighting to hold on to his job.
