Darren Bent wants Aston Villa to strike a balance

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has stated that he feels he needs more service to score goals, and that the club need to find a balance in their play to be successful.

The Midlands outfit are still undefeated in the Premier League, but have drawn four out of their five games and were knocked out of the Carling Cup by Bolton in midweek.

Despite praising the team defence, the England attacker feels that his team could be more dangerous going forward.

“We are defending well and working well as a team but we need to find a balance. We have to find the right balance for the team to be solid as an offensive. The gaffer is looking for different alternatives and hopefully it will work,” he told The Daily Mail.

“It’s about finding a system where we are a lot more dangerous and potent.

“When you are a striker, you are used to scoring left, right and centre and when the ball is not coming and you are not getting as many opportunities, then it is going to play on your mind. But I am a team player and as long as the team is playing well, I won’t grumble,” he concluded.

Villa travel to take on QPR at Loftus Park on Sunday, as the jury still remains out on new manager Alex McLeish.
