No timescale for how long Darren Bent will be out of action

Villa manager Paul Lambert is putting no timescale on how long Darren Bent will be out of action with his ankle injury.

It is the ankle Bent injured against Wigan last season, which forced him out of the final three months of the campaign and ended his hopes of being part of England's Euro 2012 squad.

The striker suffered the setback while training last week, forcing him out of the 1-0 win at Sunderland.

"Darren had a scan on Wednesday and it's still too early so we will have to go with the same squad of players."

"Darren's doing okay at the minute but we'll have to wait and see. It is the ankle he injured against Wigan so we will wait and see."

– Paul Lambert, Aston Villa manager
