Dundalk 0 Bray Wanderers 2
Goals from debutant striker Gary Shaw and midfielder Chris Shields earned bottom side Bray a huge win at Oriel Park to give their hopes of avoiding automatic relegation a massive lift.
Shaw, an 18-year-old Irish schools international signed form Newbridge Town earlier in the week, struck for the opener after just 33 minutes, shooting to the net from just inside the area.
Jake Kelly then provided the cross for Shields to seal the points on 65 minutes. Bray are now just three points behind second bottom Drogheda with a game in hand.
