Tuesday, January 29th, 2013 at 8:22 am by Phil Mc Grath

A midweek helping of fantasy action is on the cards as we prepare for round 24 of the Irish Times Fantasy Premier League, as far as team news is concerned ahead of the coming fixture week Manchester City have announced that Vincent Kompany is likely to be out of action for up to three weeks with a calf strain, while there was further bad news for the City defence with Matija Nastasic also looking doubtful for the champions trip to Loftus Road and will have to face a late fitness test going into this one after he picked up a knee injury. Harry Redknapp has revealed Shaun Wright-Phillips and Junior Hoilett are doubts for QPR, while Bobby Zamora seems set for a bench spot as he builds up his fitness

Villa have been dealt another blow ahead of their must win game with Newcastle with news that Fabian Delph is a doubt for Villa with the ankle injury that forced him off at Millwall in the FA Cup on Friday evening, though there was a slight ray of light with news that Nathan Baker is fit to return. Alan Pardew confirmed earlier that Moussa Sissoko will start for Newcastle against Villa but admitted he has “tough decisions to make elsewhere” as he looks to integrate a number of new signings.

Southampton’s main man Adam Lallana is on the verge of making a return from injury and may be involved for Southampton at United, while Vegard Forren could be set for a debut at centre-half against the league leaders on Wednesday night

So with the latest team news to hand here are our final thoughts on player for your fantasy side for round 24.
