Aston Villa striker Darren Bent expects to hold talks this week with manager Paul Lambert after being left out of the starting line-up for Sunday's home clash with West Brom.

The England international came off the bench to salvage a 1-1 draw with an 80th-minute equaliser after Shane Long had given the Baggies a 51st-minute lead. But Bent admitted being left out of Lambert's first XI was the climax to an unhappy fortnight.

He was not included by England boss Roy Hodgson in the squad for last month's World Cup qualifiers and was removed as Villa captain by Lambert. He said: "It's been a crappy couple of weeks, finding out I was no longer captain before the game (against Swansea). Then to find out when I got here (for West Brom) that I wasn't playing - it was disappointing."
