Rooney shortens after Bent injury - And so do Aston Villa

28 February 2012 07:29:34 EST

Wayne Rooney is now 4/1 to finish top England goalscorer in Poland/Ukraine on the back of the Darren Bent injury news, whilst bet365 have also shortened Aston Villa for the drop.

bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: "Rooney may be missing the first two games, but he's the only player we've laid in the market - opened 16/1 prior to ban reduction - and the unfortunate injury to Bent, coupled with the uncertainty about who will start the tournament up front has us shortening his price yet again."

Bent's club Aston Villa are now 14/1 (from 20/1) for relegation.

"At the moment it looks like three from five at the bottom of the Premier League, but Bent's goals will be sorely missed and Villa could be dragged into it yet," added Freeth.
