Keane sings Carlos' praises

18 Apr 2008 - 14:13:52

Sunderland boss Roy Keane is hoping that winger Carlos Edwards can find top form and full fitness in the closing weeks of an injury-ravaged season.

The 29-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international has made five appearances in recent weeks after recovering from a broken leg, with Keane a huge fan of Edwards' ability.

He told The Chronicle: "Carlos has had a stop-start season because of his injuries and we threw him straight back into action last month after he had played just one reserve game.

"We have not seen the best of Carlos yet, but even on a bad day he is a handful because of the runs he makes. I think opposing full-backs would prefer not to see his name on the team-sheet.

"We have to get the right type of service to him, though. It is no good giving him the ball with three defenders around him, which we have done a few times.

"We know Carlos is a threat and potentially there is a top game just around the corner from him. The sooner we see it the better."
