Carlisle wait on Madden's debut

FORMER Bohemians man Paddy Madden is two weeks away from full fitness.

U21 cap Madden completed his move from Bohemians to Carlisle United on Monday and he had hoped to make his debut at home to Walsall tomorrow, but Carlisle manager Greg Abbott has told fans not to expect too much too soon.

"It will be a couple of weeks before we get him to his peak fitness," Abbott said.

"But he has looked bright and lively in training and ready to join in. He's a hard-working lad, has a bit of pace and is dead honest.
