Bent was a second-half substitute in Saturday lunchtime's 1-1 draw at Villa Park after former City boss Paul Lambert had again preferred Christian Benteke.

And Turner, who scored Norwich's equaliser after Benteke had opened the scoring, was happy to see his former Sunderland team-mate, Bent, on the bench.

Turner said in the Daily Mirror: "It was pleasing for us to see Benty on the bench.

"He is a proven England international so Benteke is doing well to keep him out of the side. Benteke is a strong boy and very good in the air.

"We let him loose for the goal and he took it well, even though he didn't get the best connection on it.

"But you know what you are going to get from Benty. If you give him a chance, nine times out of 10 he will take it."
