Highlights: Bradley Wright-Phillips and Sebastian Stachnik Trial With Red Bulls

Check out the Red Bulls' two trialists.

In an apparent move for depth -- if you listen to Andy Roxburgh -- the Red Bulls have brought on Charlton Athletic's Bradley Wright-Phillips and Helmond Sport striker Sebastian Stachnik on trial.

If the last name sounds familiar, Wright-Phillips is the half-brother of Queens Park Rangers' Shaun Wright-Phillips. Bradley spent a chunk of last season on loan with Brentford City.

It's a highlight reel, but he looks like he's got some speed and a nose for goal.

Stachnik spent time in Germany and, last year, in the Dutch second division, where he scored 11 times in 45 appearances.

He's a big guy who's got some skill with the ball.

If I had to guess, the Red Bulls are taking a serious look at Wright-Phillips (Bradley, not Shaun), if only based on Roxburgh's comments. With Stachnik, it's more of a "let's kick the tires and see what happens" type thing, especially with Fabian Espindola and Peguy Luyindula turing in the performances they've been turning in lately.

But based on Roxburgh's comments, too, these would end up being depth moves. Those looking for a more permanent right midfielder or a more dynamic striker are likely out of luck right now.

Anyway, thoughts on the trialists?
