Bray Wanderers go into tonight’s fixture aiming for 3 wins in the space of 7 days. The Wanderers won for the first time away to Derry City since 2002 last Friday night thanks to goals from Gary McCabe and Aaron Greene before Tim Clancy grabbed all 3 points in the dying seconds of the match. Harry Kenny’s side then traveled to Drogheda on Tuesday nights in the first round of the EA Sports Cup and came away with a 1-0 win thanks to a Ryan Brennan first half penalty. That win sets up an away tie with St.Patrick’s Athletic on Easter Monday.
Looking back on the past week and ahead to Friday’s fixture, Bray Wanderers Head Coach Harry Kenny said,
” I was delighted to get the three points up in Donegal last Friday night against Derry City in a very emotional charged evening.We rode our luck in the game with Peter Cherrie pulling off some great saves.On the other hand we scored three excellent goals away from home two of which were worthy of winning any game. We followed this victory up with a very good 1-0 win in the EA Sports Cup tie in Drogheda. We played very well and to keep a clean sheet was very pleasing. We can now look forward to a trip to St Pats in the next round.”
“We look forward to the Galway game on Friday with some confidence back and we will be doing our best to secure the three points on offer.”
Conor Earley is out of Friday’s game after picking up a hamstring injury against Derry. Karl Moore and Kevin Lynch remain injured while Anto Flood missed the Derry & Drogheda games with bruised ribs and is doubtful to face Galway.
