Bray Wanderers -v- St Patrick's Athletic

While there are no new injury worries for The Seagulls, they could make a lot of changes to their team for this game.

Eddie Gormley was not one bit happy with how his players performed in their FAI Ford Cup quarter-final defeat to Galway United, so his wrath could be felt by some as they find themselves axed from the starting eleven.

Youngsters Jake Kelly and Gareth Coughlan could play some part, while Darryl Robson will be hoping to earn a rare start for a club that he only joined in the summer.

"I just hope we can get a performance on Friday night," said Gormley.

There is no sympathy afforded to St Pat's after their European exploits as they go straight back into league action with this match.

The Super Saints have a lot of big games coming up so this fixture might see John McDonnell rotate his side and use some squad players so he can freshen things up.

If that is the case, then David Partridge, Dave Rogers, Jaroslaw Bialek, Bobby Ryan, and Glen Fitzpatrick could all start, but Derek O'Brien is suspended.
