The Midlands giants find themselves looking down at the relegation trap door once again after suffering a surprise 1-0 home defeat to Wolves on Saturday.

The damaging reverse means Houllier's troops are now just one point clear of third-from-bottom Wolves, further intensifying the pressure on their French tactician.

A number of Villa fans are unhappy with the former Liverpool boss at the helm and have called for his departure, but Bent insists the club's squad still have his back.

"We all believe in the manager and we're still fighting for him," said Bent.

"There's no reason why we can't get out of it."
