"Darren Bent is injured with a tight hamstring. He will be back next week," revealed Jol ahead of Fulham's match against the Baggies.
"That is not what we wanted as Darren Bent is here because we needed some pace up front and he gave us that.
"He scored that goal against Arsenal, he plays off the shoulder which is an advantage for other players, but he’s not here now.
"I can’t change that so I will play with Berbatov up front."
Bent has scored 104 Premier League goals in his career, but made just 16 appearances under Lambert at Villa Park, scoring three times in the 2012-13 campaign.
