Injury worries for Bray

Bray Wanderers have a host of injured players going into tonight's game away to Sligo Rovers at the Showgrounds, kick-off 8pm.

Paddy Kavanagh (ankle), Derek Pender (knee) and Dave Mulcahy (groin) are set to miss out for Wanderers, while Chris Deans (calf strain) and Derek Foran (hamstring) are doubts.

Daryl Robson, who was suspended for Friday having been sent off in Cork, comes back into the squad.

Bray boss Eddie Gormley said: "Friday night was a very good performance and a good result. We played with a lot of confidence and we will need to repeat that performance against Sligo.

"They are a very good side although they have hit a bad patch. We will have to perform well if we want to get anything out of the game.”

Rovers boss Paul Cook will be able to call on Danny Ventre and Stephen Parkhouse as both return to the squad.

Mauro Almeida may return to the starting line-up having played a half an hour against Dundalk on Saturday, however, Chris Butler remains out as he recovers from a car crash injury.
