Team news v Bohemian FC

The Wanderers welcome Bohemian FC to the Carlisle Grounds on Friday night aiming to follow up with another 3 points after last weekends 2-1 victory against Derry City.

Graham Kelly’s injury list however hasn’t shortened this week with another player added to the injury list.

The Wanderers will again be without injured player’s John Sullivan, Aaron Greene, Darragh Noone, Jake Kelly, Aaron Dillon and now Hughie Douglas for tomorrow night’s game against Bohemian FC. Hughie adds to the Wanderers injury list after he picked up a knee injury in training this week while Aaron Dillon will miss out again due to a back injury picked up in the Limerick game two weeks ago. Kevin Lynch will also miss out as he serves a 1 match suspension after picking up 5 yellow cards so far this season. While Shane Flynn misses the game as he is away with Leicester City who he has signed a 4 year deal with and will move over to them on 1st July.
Caretaker manager Graham Kelly said “We have been very unfortunate with injuries of late and now Hughie and Aaron add to that list. Hughie damaged his knee in training this week and is undergoing an MRI Scan today so we will have more information and see the full extent of the injury over the next few days. Aaron Dillon still hasn’t recovered from the back injury he picked up against Limerick and has returned to Blackburn Rovers for treatment. With the injuries and suspension to Kevin Lynch we have added U17 Bray/SJB Academy player Cian Walsh to the first team panel for tomorrow nights game, Cian has been playing really well for our U17’s and can cover a number of positions, again it is great experience for Cian to be up training with the first team and to be included in the squad for the game against Bohs along side other Bray/SJB academy players Jake Ellis and Adam Dempsey.”
Looking back on last week’s 2-1 win over Derry and to tomorrow’s match against Bohs, Kelly said “I thought we were excellent in the game last week against Derry. Right from the first whistle we didn’t allow Derry to play or get their passing game going, we pressed and worked as a team and when we won the ball back we kept it really well and created some good chances. Derry came here on the back of a 10 game unbeaten run but the work rate and the attitude of our player’s was fantastic and was very evident for all to see, I felt we throughouly deservered the 3 points on the night. Again we will need to try match that performance tomorrow evening and hopefully get another 3 valuable points on board. We know if won’t be easy as Bohs are a very good side with a lot of experience and young quality players in their squad, Keith has them playing  some really good football and they no doubt will come here full of confidence and upbeat after their 2-0 away win in Sligo last weekend.”
Kick off at the Carlisle Grounds is at 7:45pm
