Abraham will have scan on injury

TAMMY Abraham will have a calf injury assessed after getting injured during the victory over Middlesbrough.

The striker is having a scan before he joins up with England’s under-21s on international duty.

But Villa manager Dean Smith hopes the problem will not be serious enough to stop the on-loan Chelsea striker playing his part in the club’s play-off bid.

Smith told reporters: “Tammy felt his calf but we’re hoping it is cramp or fatigue more than anything.

“El Ghazi has come off with fatigue, too, because we’ve had three games in six days.

“It’s too much. This game should have been on a Sunday to give us enough time to recover from the games on Wednesday and last Sunday.

“But there’s me moaning and the lads have done well and showed me lots of energy and enthusiasm out there,

“Tammy will now have a scan before he goes off on international duty.”
