Tresor Kandol for me is a bit of an enigma. There’s no questioning his goal-scoring ability, but at times he’s the most infuriating player to watch. The same could be said of Jermaine Beckford too I suppose, but Tres’ downfall is he doesn’t have the same flair as Beckford does.

What’s really impressed me about Tresor Kandol lately though is his determination to be noticed. Tucked away in the reserves, most players are easily forgotten about, but Tres has continued to make headlines by scoring for fun.

With Lucciano Becchio still a fitness doubt, Mike Grella clearly not the finished article yet and Enoch Showunmi hopefully demoted to cleaning the other players boots after his shocking display the other week, Tresor Kandol’s place in the pecking order must surely have improved?

You have to wonder what it is he needs to do to gain a place in the first team. On loan to Millwall last season Tres scored 8 in 16 appearences, only last night he hit a brace for the reserves to follow-up on the hattrick he netted the week before and he was probably the only player on the pitch against Darlington that really looked hungry to break into Grayson’s plans.

I’ll admit that I’ve had my reservations about Tresor Kandol for some time now, but when you look at the alternatives we have in the striker department, he’s the only one that will contribute enough goals to challenge Becks and Becchio for a permanent spot. If Lucciano isn’t fit this weekend, I’d be very disappointed to see anyone other than Kandol in the starting line-up – and if Luci is fit, I’d be equally as disappointed to see Enoch on the bench instead of Tres.
