Bent feels Sunderland coming to grips with away day form

Darren Bent says Sunderland are proving they're over their away day struggles.

The signs are positive for a team which lost 13 away in last season's Premier League.

"We've just been working hard and our mentality's changed," Bent told The Journal. "That was what he (Bruce) wanted to change most, the mentality. We're managing to do that and it's paying dividends.

"Our problem in the last couple of seasons definitely hasn't been raising our game to the big occasion, it's been games against the teams in and around us.

"We've been playing some good football and we've been unfortunate not to get more for it recently but we've just got to keep going."
