Bantams Beaten By UCD

Bantams Beaten By UCD

Bradford's pre-season continued with them just edged out by the odd goal in five against UCD AFC on Tuesday.

The week-long tour of Ireland started with the Bantams facing UCD but it was the Irish side that just had the edge in the end as we twice came back from a goal-down to be beaten 3-2 in the end at the UCD Bowl.

First half UCD goals from Robbie Creevy and Conor Cannon came either side of Clarkson equalisers, on in each half, with Toyeed Mustapha coming off the bench to make the most of a defensive mix-up to grab the winner 12-minutes from time.

Phil Parkinson looked at most of his squad, including a couple of trialists, Angelo Balanta and Nick Arnold, too with the game giving a good workout for all, which is the main thing at this stage.

UCD AFC 3 (Creevy 21, Cannon 44, Mustapha 78)
Bradford City 2 (Clarkson 41, 54)

Jon McLaughlin (Elliott Barker 63), Alan Sheehan (Andrew Davies 63), Sam Wright, Mark Yeates (Billy Clarke 63), Lewis Clarkson (James Hanson 63), Jason Kennedy (Matthew Dolan 63), Angelo Balanta (Billy Knott 63), Raffaele De Vita (Gary Liddle 63), Nick Arnold (Stephen Darby 63), Rory McArdle (c) (Matt Taylor 46), Niall Heaton (James King76)
