Youngster can make best of loan.
STEVE Bruce is confident Elias Sorensen can make a success of his loan stint with Carlisle United this season.
The Danish youngster has been afforded just 34 minutes by the League Two side so far but Bruce feels the move to Brunton Park can help him prosper.
Sorensen was happy to fight for his place but Bruce told the Chronicle: "He can benefit from it.
"I have spoke to Shola and the people in the Under-23s."
Sorensen had a frustrating stint at Blackpool last season, when he made just one appearance at Bloomfield Road before being recalled.
He is now hoping for more game time in League Two but Carlisle boss Steven Pressley said this week there was no clause in the deal agreed with Newcastle which said Sorensen must play.
The Danish under-21 international did not get off the bench during the 2-0 defeat against Cheltenham.
Pressley said: "It is entirely in our hands.
"It is like every loan player. They want them here and they want them to play but they respect us managers have to make these decisions.
"I hope he will bring us goals and he will bring movement in behind. I think he is effective."
Speaking about Sorensen's cameo appearance so far, against Mansfield, Pressley said: "It was good to bring him on and we hoped he could provide us with the impact we wanted.
"It was not the case but I am sure we will see a lot more of him in the coming weeks.
"I think he will bring a real threat behind and he is a real goalscorer."
Sorensen will be looking for more of a chance this weekend against Salford, especially given the Cumbrians have lost their last two matches.
