Villa's Bent hoping to break Wembley duck

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is hoping he can break his Wembley Stadium duck this weekend.

The 27-year old is prolific at most grounds around England but has failed to hit the back of the net at the home of football.

This Saturday against Switzerland in a Euro2012 qualifier, Bent plans to get on the scoresheet for England and put that maiden to rest.

"I've not got a goal at Wembley for anyone to be honest. I've thought about that a couple of times," he said.

"I would like to put that one to bed so if I get an opportunity to play this weekend, hopefully that's another one I can chalk off.

"I'm not sure it will be quite on the scale of Messi's though! (in the Champions League final)."
