Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback believes Darren Bent will come under fire from the Stadium of Light faithful this weekend.
Saturday's visit of Aston Villa will be the first time Bent will play against his former paymasters since his exit in January.
Bent was a firm fans' favourite during his time in the North East before he joined Villa in a £24million deal.
Colback believes the circumstances behind Bent's transfer were unfortunate, however, he insists Sunderland have moved on since.
"I think he will get stick - and he will be expecting it," commented Colback.
"Personally, I thought he was great here. He was easy to get along with, the players liked him and he was a good player for the football club.
"It was unfortunate how it all panned out and how it ended.
"But as a club I think we've moved on since then. He has moved on, we have and we won't worry about him."
