Galway United and Bray Wanderers go head to head in tonight’s Airtricity League Premier Division clash at Terryland Park, kick-off 7.45pm.

The home side have had a disastrous season and will already have one eye on the end of season play-off against the third placed side from the first Division.

And manager John Brennan only has 12 fit players to choose from with the Under-19 squad making up the rest of the match-day squad.

United will be without long-term injured trio Johnny Keane (knee), Eric Holland (hamstring) and Victor Collins (achilles tendon).

South Korean winger Jin Gu Kim has a hamstring problem and is ruled out, while Laurence Gaughan has not reached full fitness and won't be risked.

John Egan (knee) and Eduardo Dusi (hamstring) are also ruled out through injury, while Gary Kelly is also unavailable through suspension.

For Bray, Sean Houston remains out injured with a hip injury picked up against Shamrock Rovers, while there are doubts about goalkeeper Darren Quigley, who is suffering from an elbow injury.

Defender Shane O'Connor remains out as he is still recovering from a hip injury, while Shane O' Neill and Derek Prendergast return to the squad having missed out on Bray's last two outings.

Wanderers veteran Colm Tresson is also added to the travelling party.

Bray boss Pat Devlin said: "It will be tough, they are preparing for a play-off and we will be keen to get the three points to cement sixth place. but it’s always difficult in Galway.”
