Benty: 'The only way is up'

Darren Bent believes things can only get better from here as the team remain at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League table having picked up just two points from our first eight games of the campaign.

We suffered our sixth defeat of the season at Stoke City on Sunday, and the striker has admitted the disappointment among the squad.

But Darren, who notched his fourth goal of the season in the 2-1 reverse, is refusing to be too downbeat.

He feels we showed enough quality in spells at the Britannia Stadium to prove we have what it takes to win games.

"The mood was very low in the dressing room after the game because nobody likes to lose," said Darren.

"But we're trying to keep the spirits up despite being bottom of the league, because we know the only way is up, we just have to start winning games.

"Stoke was a difficult game, especially after going down to ten men so early on, but after that I thought we played the better stuff.

"In the first half I thought we kept the ball well, created chances and I thought there was a really positive buzz in the changing room at half-time.

"But in the second half they just pressed and pressed, and after a while, they just grinded us down."
