30-Year-Old Forward Fulham Premier
Bent was an unused substitute during Sunday's match with Everton. Fulham manager Felix Magath said Bent stayed on the bench due to a knock picked up during midweek training, the Swindon Advertiser" reports. However, Bent disputes the claim saying he practiced in full the Saturday before the match.
Injured or not, Bent has played just 14 minutes of Fulham's last four matches. It appears Magath has decided to use some of the younger striker options on the squad as the team fights to avoid relegation.
