Thomas Sorensen is confident a hip injury which has forced him out of international duty will not cause him to miss Stoke's clash with Bolton.[LNB] The 34-year-old pulled out of Denmark's Euro 2012 qualifier with Cyprus on Tuesday night because of a muscle injury sustained in training last week.[LNB]He opted to play in Friday's 2-1 defeat to Portugal but had to be replaced.[LNB]However, Sorensen is optimistic of being ready for Saturday's trip to Bolton.[LNB]"It is a small tear in the hip area and an ultrasound scan showed there was some bleeding," he said.[LNB]"I'm walking all right, but it's the explosive work, like kicking and sprinting, which is a problem.[LNB]"The doctor in Denmark told me this injury usually lasts a week so there shouldn't be a problem for the weekend.[LNB]"It was a difficult decision to come home, but you cannot gamble on this sort of thing.[LNB]"I know I have made the right decision."[LNB]Stoke are looking for a third successive Premier League victory after losing their opening three games.[LNB]"We have turned a corner," Sorensen told The Sentinel.[LNB]"Our last win against Blackburn was a great team effort. With good results comes confidence and you can definitely see the change."
