McGuinness returns for Bohs' clash with Bray

Bohemians need to secure a win over Bray Wanderers at Dalymount Park tonight to stay in touch at the top of the table, kick-off 7.45pm.

Jason McGuinness has recovered from a hamstring injury and should be fit to start.

Midfielders Gareth McGlynn (calf) and Glen Cronin (knee) are likely to be out for the Bray match but may make it back for next Tuesday's clash with Shamrock Rovers.

With Killian Brennan and Conor Powell suspended, Gypsies boss Pat Fenlon may bring in some of the younger players from the A team.

Fenlon said: "We will have to see how people are before we decide on the line-up. But there's enough quality in the squad to ensure we can match any opposition.

"This is a big week for the team, with matches coming up against Rovers and Pat's. But this is what the players want, matches coming quickly one after the other."

Wanderers have selection concerns ahead of the trip to Dalymount as Jake Kelly, John Mulroy and Stephen Brennan are out injured, while Shane O'Connor is ruled out through suspension.

There is also a doubt about striker Shane O'Neill who has a shoulder injury.

Sean Houston returns to the squad after serving a suspension, while Nicky Byrne and Graham Kelly have been called into the squad.

Bray’s Director of Football Pat Devlin said: “I'm really looking forward to going back to Dalymount. We have a fantastic record there and I'm looking forward to another three points.”
