Blackpool boss says Elias Sorensen now set to get chance but not biggest vote of confidence

6 months ago

On Tuesday night Elias Sorensen was left out of the Blackpool squad for a sixth time in a row.

Still having played only 32 minutes of first team football.

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips was left rung missed chances, only two on target from a total of 14 efforts.

The home side would have entered the play-off spots but had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Doncaster, after the away club equalised.

After the game, the Blackpool manager was yet again asked about the missing Newcastle loan signing Elias Sorensen.

A poll of Blackpool fans on Tuesday having shown 95% support for the 19 year old to be given more chances.

McPhillips now saying he thinks he will be now likely including ELias Sorensen in his future squads, starting with Burton away on Saturday.

However, as the Blackpool Gazette point out, not the greatest show of confidence considering it is likely to be simply down to a growing injury list.

Blackpool are eighth and three points off the play-offs and yet still only three League One clubs have scored fewer goals

The Blackpool Gazette after last night’s draw:

With Donervon Daniels and Curtis Tilt picking up knocks and joining the likes of Ollie Turton, Marc Bola and Callum Guy in the treatment room, McPhillips says Sorensen might be picked for his future squads.

Terry McPhillips:

“I’m in touch with the Under-23s coach at Newcastle.

“With the injuries we’ve got now I think he’ll come back into the squad.

“He’s just been unlucky, he (Elias Sorensen) has done nothing wrong.

“You’ve just seen tonight, Michael Nottingham has been left out of the squad in recent weeks but he’s come in and scored.

“At this stage it comes down to your squad and we’ve got a few missing now, so we will see and we will pick a team for Saturday. But it will be competitive.”
