Loan Update – Forward Continues to Show Signs, Keeper Struggles, And Defender Helps Keep Another Clean Sheet



Elias Sorensen has added a goal and an assist to his season tallies over the past two matches for Almere City. On Tuesday, Elias started at Helmond Sport in a 2-1 defeat. In the 24th minute, the young striker should have scored when a cross found him a few feet from the goal. He one-time it straight to the keeper’s feet in what was a poor effort from Elias.

Helmond Sport scored a few minutes later to make it 1-0 at halftime. They added a goal late in the second to give them a comfortable 2 goal lead. Sorensen was able to help bring one back with an assist on a corner in the 86th minute. Elias was at the near post and flicked the ball on from the corner to Thomas Verheydt, who headed it in to make it 2-1 which ended up being the final score.

Today, Almere City had a better time of it with a 4-2 win at FC Oss. Sorenson was brought on in the 82nd minute just after Almere City had taken a 3-2 lead. Elias put the match out of reach, albeit deep into stoppage time, with his 4th goal of the season. The win moves Almere City back into 2nd in the Dutch second division.

Freddie Woodman and Swansea had an afternoon to forget at Huddersfield today. The score was tied 1-1 at halftime but the second half was a different story. The Terriers scored three goals in a seven-minute surge to seal all three points. Woodman could do nothing about the goal in the first half but reacted late on a long-range strike from Lewis O’Brien in the 48th minute.

Swansea’s defense then did Woodman no favors on the third goal just 4 minutes later as they failed to clear a speculative long ball that eventually was played into the path of Duane Holmes. The striker retrieved the pass and blasted the ball past the helpless Woodman, who did get a hand on the shot but not enough to keep it out. Holman then scored his second in two minutes with a beautiful strike from very deep that flew into the far corner.

The defeat keeps Swansea in 4th in the Championship table as Watford jumped them yesterday with a 2-1 win over Derby. This was the first time Swansea had conceded more than two goals in the league this season.

Kelland Watts and Plymouth continued their unbeaten streak with a 0-0 draw at Rochdale today. It was the third straight clean sheet for Kell and the Pilgrims as they remain undefeated in the last nine league matches.

Watts was handed his 35th straight start today as he put in an excellent display at Spotland, where Newcastle were held to a 1-1 draw in the FA Cup last season. Kelland had 116 touches while attempting 99 passes. He had 6 clearances to go with winning 6 aerial duels. He was also fouled five times by Rochdale.

The point moves Plymouth to 10th place, which is quite admirable considering they were just promoted back to League One this past season. They have turned their season around after a 6 match losing streak in November/December. They are five points behind Sunderland, who occupy the final promotion place. Sunderland did defeat Burton Albion 3-0 away today. I hope they enjoyed that.

    Sorry for the late reply Tsunki mate. Off for a bit. I’m still a beginner at guitar. I try to play a few things like Hey Joe (Hendrix verson) and some Credence.

    Fulham is dominating on the stats. Hopefully Sheffield can hang on and even get a late winner. It’s pathetic to have to count on Sheffield.

    I really expected more from Sheff U tonight, it seems as though they have accepted their fate, bad news for us that, until we play them that is.

    Fulham doing all the things well that we don’t. Only thing missing is clear cut chances, let’s hope it stays that way.

    Looks like Brentford`s bottle has gone. A team who hadn`t lost in 20 games and looking certainties for auto promotion have now lost 3 on the bounce. Toney certainly is a big miss for them.

    Sheffield was never up to it today for whatever reason. I think they know it’s the Champo for them next season.

    Sheffield have truly been awful. Fulham don’t look good at all but just in cruise control against them.

    Frustrating but I do think we are the better team and will stay up if we keep up our recent form

    Is this the same Sheffield United that beat Newcastle United?
    Surely not

    And Leeds
    And Palace

    Looks like Bruce will get his bonus from Ashley.
