Sørensen: 'It was a great score'

Danish defender on 9-1 Reading victory

22 January 2018

B Team defender Mads Bech Sørensen was pleased after Brentford B defeated Reading U23 at Jersey Road on Sunday. The Bees put nine goals past their opponents, conceding only one in the dying moments.

"It was a great score and we did exactly what we spoke about before the game, so I'm very satisfied," said Mads, speaking after the final whistle at the wet and rainy training ground. "We had a really good squad today and it helped us a lot, so that's one of the main reasons for the big win."

Mads played alongside John Egan and Henrik Dalsgaard in defence with both returning from recent injuries. It's something that Mads enjoyed a lot.

"It's great for me," said Mads. "I can learn a lot. I want to play with the players in the First Team and that's what I'm hoping to do in the next couple of years so that's good for me. 

"It's great to play with them in a game because it gives you a little bit more than just training with them."

The 19-year-old also spoke about the importance of focus in the game as well as around the training pitches.

"It's important for a defender to keep focused, even if we are up 5-0. That's something you have to learn and today was a great game to try and learn to be switched on all the time.

"I've been really happy. We are playing well and have got some great results so yes that's good. Kevin [O'Connor] and Allan [Steele] are quite happy with what I'm doing too."

Mads explained that his aims and ambitions are limited for the time being, he is happy to get his head down and play some football.

"Right now I just have to improve and get better every day and then hopefully next season I will try to get some First Team games. If the opportunity arises this season, if it comes a little bit early, then of course I will try and take it and play some games as best I can.

"I think the Ireland trip coming up will be a great trip, we've got some good games lined up against some good teams so it will be good for us."
