Bray look to keep pressure on St Pat's

Bray Wanderers will stay in touch at the top of the table with victory over St Patrick's Athletic at the Carlisle Grounds tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).

Wanderers are currently just three points behind leaders Shamrock Rovers and were unlucky to concede an injury-time equaliser at Dalymount on Monday.

Darren Quigley remains out of the Wanderers squad with an elbow injury, while Gary Shaw (foot) and Stephen Brennan (calf) will once again miss out.

Stephen Last, Shane O'Connor and Dan McGuinness have been added to the matchday squad for the visit of Saints.

Bray's Director of Football Pat Devlin said: "It will be very tough against St Pat’s but we are all looking forward to it.”

Dave Mulcahy is out of contention for St Pat’s as he is struggling with a hamstring injury.

Saints captain Conor Kenna remains out and will see a specialist on Saturday morning to discover whether or not he can resume training.

St Pat’s boss Pete Mahon said: “Bray are flying at the moment and their win against us in the first series of games really set them on their way.

“They’ll want to stay as near to the top of the table for as long as they can, a little bit like us last season.

“We’re trying to get back into that group at the top of the table and although we’re going in the right direction the next three games will be crucial for us.”
