Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth has admitted his frustration at his limited playing time at Selhurst Park.

The 22-year-old, who joined the club from Danish side FC Midtjylland in August, has been playing second fiddle to Ghana international Jordan Ayew, in the absence of injured first-choice Christian Benteke.

Ayew, who is on loan from Swansea City, is yet to find the back of the net in all competitions for the Eagles while Sorloth boasts of a goal from two starts.

The Norwegian hopes the situation will soon change and believes coach Roy Hodgson will start giving him the chance to play before January.

"It's frustrating to sit on the bench, especially when I'm young and hungry to show how good I am," Sorloth is quoted as saying by Football.London

"I arrived at Palace with very high confidence so it is a contrast. There is still a lot of time before January and there are a lot of matches.

"I hope there are some chances that I will take, so let's see what's happening in January," he added.

Sorloth will be eyeing for a change next weekend when Palace travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in Premier League.
