Bray had two players and both boss Eddie Gormley and his assistant Keith Long sent off as Sligo moved back up to fourth place in the table.

Sligo's third minute lead was overshadowed by a double red card on the half hour as Meath referee Hugo Whoriskey had a busy night.

Bray keeper Steve Williams' sliced a back pass from Gary Cronin into the air to gift Matt Judge a simple tap in for his eighth goal of the season after just three minutes.

But the main talking point of the half came on 30 minutes when Sligo left-back Daniel Ventre and Bray midfielder were sent off for lunging into each other in the middle of the park.

Bray assistant manager Long was sent from the dugout for protesting Duggan's innocence.

Clive Delaney was the third player to see red on 62 minutes when he pulled Conor O'Grady back to give Sligo a penalty which Fahrudin Kuduzovic converted.

Gormley was then sent from the technical area minutes later for dissent towards fourth official Paul Deering.

Adam Hughes rattled the Bray crossbar on 80 minutes before substitute Stephen Manson added their third goal in the final minute when scooping home Brian Cash's cross.
