CARLISLE UNITED striker Char­lie Wyke says he’s happy to em­brace, rather than re­sent, his ‘su­per-sub’ rep­u­ta­tion.

Wyke, 23, had made nine league and cup ap­pear­ances this term go­ing into the week­end, with six of those from the bench.

But, rather than stroll out for a few cameo ap­pear­ances, the for­mer Mid­dles­brough trainee has knuck­led down to great ef­fect, scor­ing within mo­ments of his in­tro­duc­tion against both Cam­bridge United and Ley­ton Ori­ent.

Wyke is pre­pared to be pa­tient and re­spect his man­ager’s team se­lec­tions, so long as he con­tin­ues to make such an im­pact.

“As a sub, you want to come on and change the game and I’ve been do­ing that re­cently,” he said.

“I think last sea­son and the sea­son be­fore, when I’ve come off the bench, I haven’t re­ally been mak­ing much of a dif­fer­ence – but that’s some­thing I’ve changed this sea­son.

“Last week­end against Ori­ent was the quick­est I’ve ever scored af­ter com­ing on.

“But no mat­ter when I come on, or if I start, I just want to do ev­ery­thing I can and give 100 per cent to help get this club pro­moted.

“What­ever time I get, I’ll just keep giv­ing 100 per cent and hope­fully that gets me in the team.”
