Villa striker Bent hits brace in Derby win

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent continued his goalscoring form for Derby County last night.

It was not a convincing performance from the Rams as they struggled to break down a resolute Blackburn defence, but Bent's second-half brace proved the difference.

He broke the deadlock in the 68th minute as Ryan Shotton's long throw was flicked to the back post and the former England hitman hooked the ball past Jason Steele.

Bent is on-loan to season's end at Derby.
