Bray Wanderers will be hoping to keep up their recent great league form when they take on UCD at the Carlisle Grounds tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Bray Wanderers will be hoping to keep up their recent great league form when they take on UCD at the Carlisle Grounds tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Jake Kelly, Shane O'Neill and John Mulroy are all set to miss out for Bray as they are all struggling with hamstring injuries.

Defender Sean Houston will definitely miss out as he is serving a one-match ban.

Wanderers’ Director of Football Pat Devlin said: “Friday's game is another big game for us. I'd liked to have had a full squad to pick from but it doesn't look like it so it will be very very tough.”

UCD will be looking for three points as they maintain their push to avoid the relegation play-off.

College boss Martin Russell welcomes Andy Boyle back into the squad as the central defender has recovered from a knee injury.

Brian Shortall is ruled out for the Students through suspension, while Ciaran Nangle and Sean Harding are still out injured.

UCD manager Russell said: “This is not the same Bray Wanderers team we met in the league earlier this season.

“Pat Devlin has made a number of key signings and has his lads buzzing. But we have the talent necessary to win this game and it’s up to us to demonstrate that.”
