Aston Villa will have Ashley Westwood and Jordan Bowery available for Friday's FA Cup fourth round tie against Millwall at the Den.
Midfield man, Westwood, and striker, Bowery, were both cup-tied for the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg clash against Bradford on Tuesday having featured in the tournament for Crewe and Chesterfield respectively last summer.
Boss Paul Lambert might be tempted to bring back defender Richard Dunne for the game against the Championship side as he again trained following his return from a groin problem which has sidelined him all season.
Nathan Baker is missing with a hamstring injury, while Karim El Ahmadi is still away with Morocco at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Lambert, who has vowed to battle on despite the humiliating League Cup exit at the hands of League Two Bradford, is hoping that Villa are not the victims of another shock against the Lions in the FA Cup and he has vowed to 'get back to basics' for the encounter.
"You have to - I don't think we are ever good enough to say we are going to play a certain style of football," said Lambert on the club's website.
"We are not good enough to do that yet. You are going to have to earn the right to play against teams and compete against them.
"If ever there is a time to earn the right, it's just now.
"There is only one way to do it - you have to fight like hell and win a few games.
"But there are a few other clubs in the same category who will probably be thinking the same.
"You are going to have to fight like anything to do it."
