first_img1 Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor Tim Sherwood will wait until the last minute before deciding on whether to pick Gabby Agbonlahor in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool.The forward injured his hamstring during last weekend’s 1-0 win over Tottenham, making him a doubt for this weekend’s cup clash at Wembley.Since Sherwood’s arrival the 28-year-old has formed a formidable partnership with Christian Benteke, with the pair of them hitting 11 goals in their past seven games.But, Villa may have to cope without Agbonlahor for Sunday’s semi-final with the Reds as Sherwood sweats over his fitness.“Ciaran Clark has come off with a bad medial ligament injury so he will not be fit,” said Sherwood.“Gabby we are going to give up until the last possible moment to prove he is fit. Scott Sinclair will be back though.”last_img
