Villa wait on news of Bent’s injury

Aston Villa are hopeful that they will know the extent of Darren Bent’s hamstring injury within the next 48 hours.

Bent, who has been out of favour at Villa Park, made the starting line up for the first time since October but was forced out of action at Carrow Road after just 35 minutes with a hamstring injury and Aston Villa medical staff are waiting for the injury to settle before they can get a full diagnosis regarding the length of time the player will be sidelined.

Should the hamstring be found to only be a grade one it will still mean two to three weeks out for Bent and it looks as if he is likely to miss out on the busy Christmas period.
