Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists there's no problem with Darren Bent.
Bent had said he was unhappy with the manner in which Lambert informed him he would not be in the side last week.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs just something I‚Äôve always done. If you tell someone they‚Äôre going to play two days before the game I think they might take their foot off the pedal a little bit,‚ÄĚ said the Scot.
‚ÄúThere‚Äôs nothing better than sitting on a knife-edge at times. You have to be ready for the game. I just pick a team I think will win a game. I‚Äôve got no dispute with anyone.
‚ÄúAs an ex-player I know you have to do your utmost to get into the side. In terms of Darren, I don‚Äôt have one problem whatsoever.
‚ÄúHe didn‚Äôt knock on my door. That‚Äôs why I don‚Äôt think there is a problem. Nothing.‚ÄĚ
