Bolton boss Freedman delighted with 2-goal Twitter freak Sordell

Bolton Wanderers striker Marvin Sordell shrugged off his Twitter addiction to score twice in their FA Cup replay win over Sunderland.

Trotters boss Dougie Freedman admits he had to confiscate Sordell's mobile phone because he was always on Twitter.

Freedman said: "Marvin has done very well for us. He is only a young guy and there is a lot of pressure on him with a big move up to the north then being called into the Olympic squad.

"With my experience of working with young players like Marvin, we got him back to basics and stripped down his game and he's started to prove what he is - a goalscorer."
