Just a quick update.

The Official Site says that England and Villa striker Darren Bent will have a scan on monday to determine how serious the ankle injury he picked up at Wigan is.

McLeish said: ‘He was in a bit of agony in the dressing room. From his reaction it seemed serious. He went over on his ankle. It’s now whether it’s ligament damage, usually it’s ligaments that are affected in situations like that. You never know – it could settle down in the 24-48 hours before the scan.”

Fingers crossed. He did look in a bad way on the pitch, would be gutted for him if he is out for a long period as it will affect any chance he has in the Euro`s and obviously, will impact on us as well.

McLeish confirmed Bent will be out of the England squad to face Holland.
