Bent backs Villa to find the net

23 August 2012 10:55

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is confident the club possesses enough goal-scoring ability in their squad this season.

The England international ended last term as the club's top scorer with nine goals, despite missing several months of the campaign through injury.

Chances for the 28-year-old were limited in a 2-0 defeat at West Ham United on Saturday, but he hopes Villa will soon reproduce their pre-season goal-scoring form.

"We know we're more than capable of scoring goals, turning results around and getting wins," Bent told The Birmingham Mail.

"We played well and scored goals in pre-season, even against a top German side in Werder Bremen, so there are definitely goals in the team.

"I love Villa Park and I'm looking forward to doing well for the club, I'm hungry to score goals and I want to be here for a long, long time."

Bent could be a doubt for this weekend's game against Everton after picking up an eye injury in a collision with West Ham defender, and former team-mate, James Collins on Saturday.

However, the forward seems to have responded well to treatment by the club's medical staff as he looks to help Villa bag their first win of the league season.
