Jacob Sorensen: We showed good character by staying in the game

27 October 2020

Norwich City midfielder Jacob Sorensen praised his teammates' mentality to keep fighting long enough to earn a 1-1 draw against Brentford on Tuesday night.

Ivan Toney gave the Bees the lead in the first-half, but City held on to earn a point with a deflected Kenny McLean shot in the 87th minute.

Speaking on the game and his late admission into the starting eleven, Sorensen was complimentary for his team’s mindset in the draw, adding he was pleased to make his debut, even if it was out of his usual position.

“I think it wasn’t our best game, it was hard, but we showed good character by staying in the game and getting one point.

“I knew Xavi [Quintilla] had some problems but it came late. I was just happy to play and try do my best, even it was on the left-foot!

“I came through and I think I did my best. In the second-half, when I got tired, I made some silly mistakes, but overall I think it was an okay performance.

“It’s been good here so far, I’ve been struggling a little bit with some injuries and illness, but I think I’m on the right track now and I have to keep going.”

Discussing the result, the Danish midfielder gave credit to McLean for his late equaliser, saying the team should continue shoot when they get the chance, especially against difficult opposition like Brentford.

“Obviously they [Brentford] are a good team and last year they nearly got promotion, so we knew it was going to be a tough game and we didn’t play at our best, but one point is okay!

“We showed good character and good fighting again and so the goals will come.

“We spoke about shooting when we have the opportunity. Maybe it gets deflected or goes straight in, so when we have the opportunity we should shoot.”
