Rovers travel to Bray with full squad

Shamrock Rovers return to the scene of their 2010 league clinching success when they take on Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Rovers have a full squad available for the trip to Bray.

Hoops boss Michael O’Neill said: “It is the first time this season that we have a full squad available to us, with no injuries or suspensions, so that is a boost to us for the game.

“Bray are the only team that have beaten us in the league so far this year, so we will going out there to try and make up for that, and get the win.

“They have some very good, young players at Bray at the moment and they are doing well so far this season. But it’s a game the lads will be more than up for, and we’ll be hoping for a win.”

Darren Quigley (elbow), Gary Shaw (foot) and Stephen Brennan (calf) remain on Bray’s injury list, while there are also doubts about Dave Webster (ankle), Danny O'Connor (thigh) and Graham Kelly (knee).

Bray's Director of Football Pat Devlin said: "The team are making progress. This is a big game for us and we look forward to the visit of Shamrock Rovers.

“And we are hoping to go on and win the game and collect another three points.”
