The bottom three clubs in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division all go in search of badly needed points this evening, with Bray appearing to have the toughest task, at home to St Pat’s.
Points the priority as Harry Kenny takes the reins at Bray

For the visit of Liam Buckley’s side to the Carlisle Grounds (kick off 7.30pm), Bray will have caretaker manager Harry Kenny at the helm, following the departure of Mick Cooke.

“Our immediate concerns are to improve our first team position in the SSE Airtricity League where we sit last — bearing in mind the difficult matches over the next few weeks,” said the club.

“We will also be going through the process of appointing a full-time manager.”

The Seasiders go into the game with just one league win and rooted to the bottom of the Premier Division on goal difference behind Sligo Rovers, who are also on four points after eight games of the new campaign.

Longford Town are just one point ahead of the Bit O’Red as they travel to the Showgrounds this evening (7.45pm).

Meanwhile, in the First Division, the action is at the upper end of the table as third play fourth, with Cobh Ramblers hosting Shelbourne at St Colman’s Park where this evening’s kick off is 7.15pm.
