Jer tim­ing could not be bet­ter!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ALEX MCLEISH has re­vealed that Jer­maine Je­nas could make a shock re­turn to boost As­ton Villa’s Premier League sur­vival big.

And Charles N’zog­bia is also poised for a swift come­back in the crunch clash at Liver­pool.

Mcleish is des­per­ate for ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers as he bat­tles the drop and claims Je­nas may play be­fore the end of the sea­son.

The 29-year-old, who is on loan from Spurs, was ruled out for the rest of the cam­paign with an Achilles in­jury in De­cem­ber.

But Mcleish said: “I can’t rule out if he is go­ing to be avail­able.

“The doc­tor keeps in touch with Spurs as he’s get­ting his treat­ment down there.

“With Charles I was hop­ing maybe we could rush him back for this week. That would be a mas­sive bonus.

“They thought three to six weeks but he has healed quickly.”

POS­I­TIVES: Steve Kean

HEAL BE BACK: Je­nas
