Bent rallies Villa troops

Published Add your comment

Striker Darren Bent has challenged Aston Villa to improve on the worst season of home results in their history and make Villa Park a fortress again.

Villa won just four of their 19 Barclays Premier League matches in front of their own fans during 2011-2012 as they avoided relegation by only two points.

England international Bent knows Villa have to do better than that during the forthcoming campaign. He said: "Last season our home form let us down and we need to improve on that this season. We want fans to wake up and think 'yes, it's match-day and we are off to Villa Park'."
