Paddy awaits Cup news

IN-FORM Irish striker Paddy Madden is waiting for news on whether he can line out for Yeovil Town in the FA Cup next weekend.

Former Bohemians man Madden (right) has been a big hit with Yeovil since joining on loan from Carlisle United, scoring five goals in five games, but he may have played his last game for Yeovil. Their next outing is in the FA Cup, against Preston next Saturday, and Carlisle may want the player to miss that game to avoid him being cup-tied.

"It is D-Day because you are going to want to have him available for the cup. Me and (Carlisle manager) Greg Abbot will have a chat, we will see where we are with it and I cannot tell you any more because I don't know any more," says Yeovil boss Gary Johnson.

"They lost on Saturday against a decent side in Bournemouth so we will wait and see. I think a lot of it will be down to Paddy's discussions with Carlisle."
