Lambert: No issues with Bent

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert insists there is "no problem" with striker Darren Bent, who came off the substitutes' bench to score the equaliser in the 1-1 derby draw with West Brom at Villa Park.

Record signing Bent was axed from the starting line-up against the Baggies, with Lambert preferring Gabriel Agbonlahor and Christian Benteke in his starting line-up. Bent was introduced midway through the second half and earned Villa a point with an 80th-minute close-range effort.

But, when asked if Bent was upset, Lambert said: "No, he was great. There was no problem. I just named the team and that's the team I picked."
