Darren Bent: 'games that changed my life'

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.'
