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'."
