Darren Bent discusses games that changed his life in the latest edition of Four Four Two. One of his choices is Sunderland 1, Charlton 3 in August 2005.
He recalls: 'Alan Curbishley had signed me for Charlton in the summer for £2.5m - a big move for me, as they were established in the top flight. When you join a new club, you want to hit the ground running - everyone always looks at your ratio and you want to get that first goal as soon as possible.'
'Luckily I scored twice at Sunderland on the opening day, which was a huge relief. We won 3-1 and I ended up scoring in the next two games too. By mid-September we were second.'
