Fulham(N) vs Aston Villa - Ahmed Elmohamady winning race to be fit for Championship play-off final

Aston Villa defender Ahmed Elmohamady is making good progress in his recovery from injury and stands a good chance of playing in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final against Fulham at Wembley.

The 30-year-old defender was absent for the second leg of the semi-final at home to Middlesbrough last week after suffering a hamstring injury in the first game at the Riverside and there were fears he could also miss the showpiece at the national stadium.

However, things are looking much more positive after the Egyptian resumed training this week and he will be put through his paces again on Friday.

If Elmohamady does not make it then James Bree is likely to fill in, as he did against Boro for the goalless second leg at Villa Park which clinched Villa’s passage to the final.

Fulham are at full strength as they aim to end a four-year absence from the Premier League.

The Cottagers have reported no problems after they beat Derby over two legs in the early part of last week.

Sheyi Ojo could be involved in the squad after missing the last seven games due to injury, though he is unlikely to start.

Slavisa Jokanovic replaced Floyd Ayite with Aboubakar Kamara for the second leg against the Rams and he must again choose between the two at Wembley.
