French striker Achille Campion scored all three goals to help a makeshift Bradford City side to a 3-0 win at Park Avenue tonight.

City fielded nine trialists and Campion and winger Mo Shariff were the stand-out performers in an entertaining game at Horsfall Stadium.

But young striker Lewis Clarkson was forced off early on with a sore hamstring.

Don't be fooled by the hatrick. Campion didn't show much in my opinion. Shariff however was excellent and showed real class on the wing. Movement was excellent and pacey with a good touch. Worth a punt.

Apart from three goals he didn't look that good? What more can he do to impress?

Two tap ins and one off the keeper. Missed two sitters and was anonymous for most of the game. Not my idea of potential.

Dont know the names so here goes with a few numbers. I thought 9 did well enough, 6 settled well after shaky start. 7 and 11 showed up well but tended to overdue it instead of using easier ball. Goalkeeper shaky at start then settled. Kennedy didnt put the shift in that I expected. At the end of the day you can only beat what is in front of you and they did that, whether they are good enough for league 1 is a matter of opinion

Some promise but an injury scare is the real concern as we remain threadbare. It's a squad game and we barely have a team and a half.

Perhaps Whisky1 will come on to the boards defense and Peter will have his say so too. It could turn out that we need them on the pitch if things take a turn for the worse!

Quite often the best strikers in the word dont do too much in a game except put the ball in the back of the net, when did you ever see the likes of Lineker or Rush chasing back or out muscling defenders, yet put the right ball in the box and they came to life! Not saying this lad is in their league but scoring goals is a good habbit and the chances he missed, well if youve ever played on that pitch you'd know how bad and bobbly it is. Surely he's worth a better look at, check him out on you tube, scores some impressive goals and has some good link up play in his game

I'd agree with that.

I also thought Coulson at right back played well after a shaky start.

I'd certainly be offering Shariff a contract, if we can agee terms within the budget.

Of the City players on view, I thought Kennedy played better than Meredith.

Oh come on guys; with a strike force of Clarkson & Campion, I would be disappointed if we aren't up by Christmas....!

Some people need to realise the levels difference between League1 and the 2nd/3rd tier of non-league!!!!!

Moan moan moan, Sick of it. a man scores 3 goals and we get answers like: Don't be fooled by the hatrick. Campion didn't show much in my opinion. Parky has set up and still is a team that will be top 8 this year so stop it all of you. ;-)
