Bray Wanderers striker Anto Flood started for the second week in a row, as Dylan Connolly was left on the bench, as the Seasiders took on Galway United on Friday night.
It looked to be a great decision by Seagulls boss Harry Kenny after only 18 minutes when the former United striker headed home the opening goal. Mark Salmon added to their tally ten minutes later as Bray were cruising, as the home sides defending let them down yet again.
United did pull a goal back through defender Stephen Folan in the second half, but it was all to no avail as Wanderers held on to take the points.
Flood was pleased to get on the scoresheet, “Yes it was a great win and the lads dug deep. Performance wise we could’ve been better, but look 3 points is what matters and we’re happy heading home.”
After starting the opening couple of games this season Flood has found game-time in short supply, but is happy to be contributing now. He said, “Yeah it’s good to be back in the team and scoring as well. We’ve a good squad here and when you get a chance off Harry to start, it’s up to you really to keep your place.”
They now face the top two teams in the country, Dundalk and Cork City in their next two league matches, which are both at home. Flood said, “Now the focus turns to next week as it’s a massive game at home. Hopefully we can get the same outcome, which is 3 points.”
