Tottenham winger Gareth Bale says they're wary of former teammate Darren Bent as they prepare to face Sunderland.

Spurs need a result to keep hold of fourth place.

Bale told the club's website: "Sunderland away is always tough as we've found out during the last two seasons, but we're full of confidence and we'll be looking to go there and get the three points we need.

"'Benty' showed when he was here that given the chance he would score goals, and he's done exactly the same at Sunderland. Hopefully we can keep him quiet at the weekend."
