We had a chat with goalscorer Ryan Brennan after Bray Wanderers superb 3-1 win over 3-in-a-row champions Dundalk at Oriel Park.
The 25 year-old midfielder is into his second season with Wanderers and is a pivotal player in Harry Kenny’s side. He matched his goalscoring tally of 2016 with that goal on Friday night.
Brennan was thrilled with the win over Dundalk saying, “First of all obviously delighted with the the win against the champions on their home patch. Oriel is a difficult place to go, as you never see many teams go up there and take a scalp like we did.”
“I think our game plan worked for the first 45 minutes, which was to sit in defend and frustrate them, as we knew keeping it at 0-0 at half time was massive.”
“The game obviously opened up in the second half and we got forward in numbers a lot more. We created a couple of chances and a few penalty decisions went our way, which on another day might go against any team, but for me an excellent team performance and great atmosphere.”
On upcoming fixtures for Bray, “A couple of big ones coming up for us in the next few weeks so that should give us a confidence booster going into those ones.”
When asked about his goal Ryan said, “Don’t really remember much about the goal, only Keith Buckley running down the line and crossing the ball. It just kind of fell to me, had to adjust a little to get something behind it. However I’m glad that it hit the back of the net to give us some breathing space, because dundalk were coming at us with wave after wave of attacks.”
