Bray Wanderers V St Patrick's Athletic

  • Fri, Sep 19, 2008 @ 9:28

Bray Wanderers will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing exit from the FAI Cup last Tuesday as they face St Patrick's Athletic at the Carlisle Grounds, kick off 7.45pm.

Wanderers lost 2-0 to Galway United in the quarter-final replay. They have no new injury concerns following that game. Ronan Ivory is a long term absentee.

Manager Eddie Gormley was understandably frustrated with his team's showing in that defeat. The manner of the defeat, along with the reality that there season is as good as over, upset the Bray boss.

'I was very disappointed with Tuesday night's performance, it is hard to take and people will have to up their game for Friday to compete against St. Pats.'

He added: 'It is still very fresh in the mind. I just hope we can get a performance on Friday night.'

St Pat's must take their focus off their European campaign, with their league form taking an alarming turn for the worst in the last few weeks.

They are without the suspended Derek O'Brien and Joe O'Cearuill.
