**It was 15th time lucky for Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday as a Darren Bent hat-trick inspired the home side to a 4-0 win over Bolton for Steve Bruce's side's first league victory this year.
Fraizer Campbell's opener, when Anton Ferdinand playing at the unfamiliar left back position, played the ball to Lorik Cana, he looped the ball into the Bolton area, allowing Frazier Campbell to score after 45 seconds of the game.
At least Sunderland managed a second goal following a couple of decent passes. First Steed Malbranque played in Cattermole who, finally finding his range, slipped a lovely ball to Bent, when Bent was put through before slotting past Jussi Jaaskelainen.
After soon, It got worse for Bolton and even better for Bent. First Sam Ricketts was sent off for a second yellow card offence, namely the shove which sent Bent tumbling in the area, thereby conceding a penalty.
Next the victim dusted himself down and stepped forward to convert that kick before completing his first Sunderland treble by shooting through a crowded area after playing a lovely one-two with Campbell.
Bent has now scored 19 times this season for his club and with every goal is making it harder for the England manager to ignore him.
