Bray duo a doubt for Dundalk clash

Dundalk and Bray Wanderers go head to head in tonight’s Airtricity League Premier Division clash at Oriel Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Jake Kelly is a doubt for Bray for the trip to Dundalk as he is struggling with a shoulder injury.

John Mulroy is also struggling with a back injury and will face a late fitness test with Kelly.

New signing, 18-year-old centre forward, Gary Shaw is added to the squad and Dane Massey returns after being suspended for last weeks Cup game.

Bray's Director of Football Pat Devlin said: “I'm looking forward to Friday night. It will be tough. We have already beaten them up there, but we need points on the board and if we put in the same effort as last Friday we will be there or thereabouts.”

Dundalk boss Ian Foster must plan without suspended pair Tom Miller and Stephen Maher, while Alan Cawley (back) and Garry Breen (ill) are also unavailable.

Matthew Tipton remains a doubt as he is struggling with a back injury, however, Fahrudin Kuduzovic should be included after recovered from an ankle injury.
