Bent struck a brace in the 2-2 draw.
He told safc.com: "We played well against Arsenal and we managed to dig out a 1-1 there, then obviously we had the disappointment of the defeat to West Ham on Tuesday.
"But the boys bounced back today and in certain areas we played them off the park. I think the result was a bit unjustified considering the way we played today."
"Reina is one of the best in the business at saving penalties but I just decided to hit it as hard as I could and as true as I could and luckily it's ended up in the back of the net.
"It was great to get the two goals today but overall I thought the team performance was magnificent."
