Dundalk hoping to stop losing streak against Bray

Dundalk hoping to stop losing streak against Bray

Dundalk will seek to return to winning ways after two defeats in a row.

The Lilywhites were unfortunate in a rain-soaked encounter in Cork last time out and Dundalk boss Sean McCaffrey, who sees Chris Shields returns after suspension, said: "I felt we were excellent in Cork, especially when you consider we started the match with eight teenagers.

"It’s a baptism of fire for our squad, but we got involved in a shootout and we could have come out on the winning side."

Dundalk’s Mark Griffin is close to a return but Luke Danville (ankle) is out while Derek Foran is recovering from treatment on a back injury and remains a doubt.

Bray’s Shane O' Connor and Adam Mitchell are both back in contention after recent injuries.

Bray secured a home win over Bohemians and their Director of Football, Pat Devlin, said: "They were a valuable three points to get on the board last week although we have played better and lost. Its a difficult assignment against Dundalk at Oriel Park but hopefully we can get a result."
