Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has backed Michael Owen to soon find his form at the Britannia Stadium.

Owen, who joined the Potters on a free transfer earlier this month, has been restricted to two substitute appearances since his arrival.

Sorensen is confident once Owen gets up to speed with his fitness he will soon start scoring goals for Tony Pulis' side.

And the Stoke boss will continue to gradually introduce the striker, who joined the club at the beginning of September on a one-year contract, as he builds his fitness.

"He has not had the start that we have been through and has been training on his own, so he has little to catch up," Sorensen told

"But of course you can see his qualities, and I also believe that he has the confidence of the coach.

"So he'll get chances, and then he'll strike. I'm sure."
