Feeling sharp

Feeling sharp

Paddy Madden, as he told BBC Radio Cumbria, says that he is 'feeling sharp' as he looks to get his chance following injury.

21-year-old Madden returned from a metatarsal injury towards the end of 2011 and has made half a dozen sub appearances since. Now he is looking forward to getting his chance: 'I am feeling sharp and confident, so I know I can add different things to the team.

'I'm waiting on my chance because the lads have been fantastic, so it is up to me to take my chance when I get it.'

Lee Miller has been the focal point of a 4-3-3 attacking formation but his three-match suspension might open the door to Madden who feels he could do a job: 'I think I could play in any of the three positions, my natural position is up front in a two but I don't mind.

'I will play right-back if you want me to play there, I don't mind playing anywhere once I am in the team.

'I suppose I could play there but obviously I wouldn't have the physical presence that Lee would have.

'I am trying to improve my game and work on my game so I can have that as well, I'm working on different aspects of my game to improve me all round.'
