Bray Wanderers will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they take on Sligo Rovers at The Showgrounds, kick-off 7.45pm.

Wanderers boss Eddie Gormley has several selection concerns ahead of the game as Richie Baker (back), Stephen Brennan (hamstring), David Tyrrell(ankle), David O'Neill (groin) and Dean Zambra (knee) are all carrying injuries.

Sligo will be without Gary McCabe for the visit of Bray as the midfielder is suspended after being sent off in last week's loss to Dundalk.

The Bit o' Red also have a number of injury doubts as Mauro Almeida (Achilles) is a long-term absentee, while Iarhflaith Davoren is also out due to a hamstring complaint.

Matthew Blinkhorn and Richie Ryan are also struggling with injuries and will face a fitness test ahead of the match.

Former Galway midfielder John Russell will be pushing for a place in the starting line-up after an impressive showing against Dundalk.
