Villa assess Bent injury

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa are set to assess the fitness of striker Darren Bent, who has suffered an injury to the ankle which sidelined him for the final three months of last season.

Villa's £18million record signing sustained the latest setback in training on Friday and was ruled out of the weekend 1-0 win at his former club Sunderland.

Bent has been replaced in the starting line-up by Christian Benteke in recent weeks but another lengthy spell out of action would still be a blow to the midlands club.
