Thomas Sorensen Needs A Cup Run To Get A Game!

Forgotten man Thomas Sorensen is desperate to see Stoke enjoy a cup run - so he can get some games.

The keeper, 36, is only rolled out for cup matches by boss Tony Pulis with Asmir Begovic first choice for Premier League games.

And after being given just two games all season - the most recent in the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace that forced tonight's replay - Sorensen is frantic for an FA Cup victory that means he can squeeze in at least one more game this term.

He said: "The FA Cup is always an important competition for any player and for any club, but it has even greater significance for me because it means I am playing games.

"Hopefully, I am involved in the replay, and if that is the case then I will be doing everything in my power to make sure we get the result we want."

Victory will earn the Potters a fourth round clash against Manchester City but Sorensen admits Palace will fancy their chances at the Britannia Stadium.

Swindon have already enjoyed an upset by beating Stoke on their home turf in the Capital One Cup.

Sorensen added: "All of the pressure is on the Premier League side, and that is why there are a lot of shocks in the competition.

"That's what makes the FA Cup so special. We were pleased with the goalless draw down at their place because it was a potential banana skin for us.

"Palace are a very good team who have had a very good season. They will come here with nothing to lose, but we are confident of getting the job done at home."
