More bad news for Villa as Agbonlahor joins Benteke on sideline

Christian Benteke has reportedly torn his achilles, but he's not the only Villan who looks set to miss this weekend's Fulham match.

Let's make a bad day worse, shall we? On the heels of the news that Christian Benteke might be out for the rest of the season, we also get to add Gabby Agbonlahor to the list of players who will probably miss the upcoming Fulham match. Apparently the striker missed training this week with some sort of a sickness and is a serious doubt to be ready to play on Saturday. Missing Agbonlahor would mean that Villa would only have Andi Weimann of their typical three-striker setup ready for a match that could all but assure Aston Villa of safety this year, and could do a lot to doom Fulham to the Championship.

With Paul Lambert missing two strikers, how would you set the team up for the match? Callum Robinson, who has seen the bench a lot lately, seems like an obvious choice, as does Grant Holt. Let us know what you think in the comments! You can also feel free to put your despair there. What a day.
