Fulham fans lay into Derby County striker Darren Bent on Twitter after defeat

Darren Bent came off in the second half with a hamstring injury against his former club.

Derby County slipped up today in their pursuit of the Championship title and promotion to the Premier League as they struggled to get off the ground in a 2-0 defeat against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Goals from Nikolay Bodurov and Cauley Woodrow proved enough for The Cottagers, who could have had more and were good value for their win.

One man who will want to forget this game sooner than any other Derby player would be Darren Bent.

He spent an unhappy season on loan at Fulham in 2013/14. He scored just six goals in 30 appearances for the club as they were relegated from the Premier League.

Fulham fans are not so keen on Bent and he did not make things any better when scoring against the club whilst on loan at Brighton earlier in the season. He celebrated by cupping his ears to the Fulham fans.

Fulham fans had the last laugh that day, when they came back to win 2-1. They had it again today.

Despite his excellent form for The Rams he was terrible this afternoon and was subbed off in the 64th minute of a display he would not have enjoyed with a hamstring injury.

Especially as the Fulham fans booed him off the pitch.
