WYKE’S HAPPY TO KEEP HIS SUB TAG
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.”
