New Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has made getting the best out of striker Nicklas Bendtner one of his key priorities.

The Dane moved to the Stadium of Light this summer on a season-long loan from Arsenal but has so far failed to have a major impact and has managed only two goals.

Bendtner is doubt for Sunday's crunch clash against Blackburn with a groin injury, but the manager is determined to help the 23-year-old realise his potential, and said: "I think that is paramount. He has a lot of natural talent. He wasn't always in the starting line-up at Arsenal. They have allowed him to come up here and now it's an important time for him."
