Jedinak returns to training

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has revealed he will call upon midfield Maestro Mile Jedinak for the match with Newcastle United.

The Australian soccer captain has missed five matches with a groin injury. His spirit and determination has been badly missed and Bruce is keen to get him back for the match against high flying Magpies.

Speaking ahead of the match on Tyneside, Bruce said of Jedinak:  -We’ve missed his presence and we’ve missed his leadership skills a bit. Hopefully he might return on Monday. We’ve certainly missed him in the last three or four weeks and we are hoping to get him back out on the pitch.

Jedinak has two assists in 20 appearances.
