Could work quite well.
Against a top half team who is good at counter attacking, say Spurs or Villa, we would get over run in midfield. It could be a great option against the lesser teams, especially at home. Perhaps not for the full game, but if we are not 2 or more up with 35 mins to go, throw on the extra forward and pile on the pressure.
The movement and physical presence of Welbeck and Gyan will pull defences all over the place, creating space for Bent. Onouha and Henderson will exploit those spaces and play the balls through to Bent. It could work very well.
