Premier League

Aston Villa have key injury doubt

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez is a major doubt for the Clarets' visit on Thursday evening, which could provide Burnley a crucial boost in their bid to stay in the Premier League. Mike Jackson's side are only one point behind Leeds United in the Premier League rankings, and a draw in the West Midlands would be enough to put them ahead of the Whites.

United will be careful observers as they travel to Brentford on the penultimate day of the season and will learn exactly what is required to keep their place in the top division at the end of Thursday night. While Leeds will be hoping for a Clarets slip-up similar to the one we witnessed in north London last weekend, Mike Jackson's side believe they can still escape, while Villa's chances of finishing in the top half are slim.

Prior to Burnley's visit tomorrow, the former Rangers manager disclosed that goalkeeper Martinez could miss out due to an injury sustained in training on Wednesday morning.
