Bray hoping to keep up the pressure on Cork


Bray Wanderers will look to get a little closer to League leaders Cork City tonight as they host a struggling Bohemians at the Carlisle Grounds. 

With Cork dropping their first points of the season last week, Harry Kenny’s men sit twelve points behind. A win tonight will at least maintain that gap, or even close it, depending on City’s result against Drogheda United.

Looking back on last week’s win Bray Wanderers Head Coach Harry Kenny told braywanderersfc.ie , “We got back to winning ways with an excellent 3. 0 win in Finn Harps last Friday. Finn Park is a difficult place to go so to go there and keep a clean sheet, and score three very good goals was very pleasing.”

“We didn’t have it all our own way as Harps put us under a lot of pressure, and we did well to defend seven corners in the first half alone. It was also nice to see the travelling support make the long journey to Donegal to support the team, it’s very much appreciated”.

It’s a busy time with five games coming up in two weeks. Harry said, “We have two very tough games coming up starting with Bohs on Friday in the Carlisle Grounds and away to Drogheda on Tuesday. It also helps that players will be available from injury as the next two weeks will be demanding prior to the season break.”

With so many games Harry needs as many players available as possible, and he’s lucky that some players are coming back from injury lay-offs, “Long term injuries Hughie Douglas, Conor Earley and Kevin Lynch played a training game against Ireland U-21s on Monday and came through it fine, all three need to improve their fitness levels. Daragh Noone will probably miss both the Bohs and Drogheda game on Tuesday with a thigh injury.”

“Gary McCabe and Mark Salmon are suspended for Fridays game, this will give an opportunity to other players to stake their place in the team.”
