Parkinson made a double substitute shortly after half-time and the move paid dividends just seven minutes later as former West Ham winger Hines beat three players in a 40-yard run before smartly slotting the ball past goalkeeper Michael Ingham.

Hines was substituted in Bradford's 4-3 defeat at Dagenham last Saturday, and Parkinson said: "Zavon has reacted tremendously well. He has been working with the fitness coach during the week and I am so pleased he got a goal. It will give him a lift.

"Zavon has played in the Premier League and with England's Under-21s, but he has missed his way and I am going to help him to get back on track.

"He is a terrific lad with a big heart and that gives us something to work with. It was a great individual goal he scored. He has got pace and skill, which are big positives."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
