Tomorrow holds the possibility that two of our loan boys will face each other in a League Two clash between Stevenage and Carlisle. Elias Sorensen and Carlisle United will make the journey to face Kelland Watts and Stevenage tomorrow afternoon.

It will be an important fixture for both sides as they struggle at the bottom of the table after 7 fixtures. Carlisle are in 19th spot with 7 points while Stevenage have managed just 3 draws this season, and occupy the 23rd position in the table.
It’s a big doubt that striker Elias Sorensen will get on the pitch for many minutes tomorrow. Sorensen has made just 4 appearances for only 115 minutes in the league for Carlisle.
Manager Steven Pressley said yesterday that his younger players are still further away from the first-team than anticipated. This is what Pressley told the official Carlisle website:
“I’m very comfortable with the players we have. We know where we are and my job is to work hard with all of them to make them as good as they can be.
“The younger players are possibly a bit further away from regular first-team football than we anticipated, but they’ll get there. Both the senior and younger players know that I expect them to train how they play every single day, and that’s the way we will set and maintain standards.”
It’s a different story for Stevenage and defender Kelland Watts. Watts has started and completed all five league games he has been available for. However, he now must impress a new head coach as Stevenage sacked Dino Maamria after their 4-2 defeat at Cheltenham this past weekend.
First-team coach Mark Sampson has taken over as caretaker manager while the club searches for a longer term appointment. Though we fully expect Kelland to keep his place as he played very well in a struggling side.
