Wanderers started well with Ryan Brennan heading just wide on 11 minutes from a Karl Moore cross from the left. On 17 minutes, Sadlier broke free down the left for Cork and crossed to Sheppard who turned the ball just outside the right hand post. Minutes later Sheppard had another chance when he shot across the goal and narrowly wide.
Bray had two good chances just before half time. Ryan Brennan looped a header just over the bar from a Mark Salmon cross. Brennen then shot low across the goal and inches wide of the post.
Ten minutes into the second half Cork were awarded a penalty when Shane Griffin was brought down by Aaron Greene. Sadlier hit his penalty low to the left but Lee Steacy brilliantly turn the ball around the post.
Wanderers joy was short lived as Sadlier made amends and scored his first goal for Cork. Shane Griffin fed Sadlier on the left and he fired past Steacy to give Cork the lead.
