Match Report

Having only a single Neil Austin goal to show for their efforts in the opening six games of the season, Pools went goal-crazy against League One Bradford City in the Johnstones Paint Trophy. There was little sign of the onslaught to come in a fairly even first half, in which Luke James scored his first headed goal for the club, turning the ball in from eight yards after Jack Compton had headed Jon Franks' cross back across goal. Within 13 minutes of the restart it was 4-0. Franks scored a spectacular second when he lashed home the rebound after his initial shot was blocked; Christian Burgess headed home from Compton's free kick; and then Compton himself rifled home a penalty after James had been upended in the box by Nathan Doyle. Substitute Nialle Rodney ended the evening's entertainment with his first goal for the club, an overhead kick from Michael Duckworth's right wing cross.

We were fully aware of Bradford’s strengths and their reputation in knockout football. To get the win was really pleasing but to do so in such comprehensive fashion made for an excellent night for the whole club.
- Colin Cooper
Credit must go to Hartlepool, of course, they played very well tonight, but my main thoughts are with us. Whoever is picked on Saturday against Brentford has to leave the pitch having made sure we have put in a lot better performance than we did here.
