Carlisle United: Matthieu Manset impresses Lee Miller

Mathieu Manset

Carlisle captain Lee Miller praised the impact made by debutant striker Matthieu Manset after the extraordinary 3-3 draw against Yeovil.

Two goals in added time, one an own goal, saw the Cumbrians rescue a point against the play-off chasing Glovers.

"Matthieu threw his weight around and deserved the credit for the own goal," Miller told BBC Radio Cumbria.

Formerly at Reading, Manset joined Carlisle after leaving Swiss club FC Sion because of 'irreconcilable differences'.

The France-born 23-year-old, who has also played for Hereford United and on loan at Shanghai Shenhua, replaced young striker Mark Beck shortly after the hour mark.

Miller said: "Credit to 'Becky', he did really well in the first half and has come on leaps and bounds.

"But Matthieu came on and had an impact. He got in the right positions and deserved the luck that lead to the own goal.

"For a big man he has a very nice touch. He's very deceiving. He's a very good player to play with, he links up and looks for one-twos really well."
