Longford Town 1-2 Bray Wanderers

Sun Sep 15th 2019

Bray Wanderers defeated nine men Longford 2-1 tonight at the City Calling Stadium.

A goal from John Martin and a penalty from Dean Williams in the 88th minute saw Gary Cronin’s side steal it in Longford after a defiant Town team held out with 10 men before Shane Elworthy fouled in the box for Bray’s winner.

Longford took the lead through Dean Byrne on 10 minutes when he pounced on a loose ball in the box from Luka Lovic and slotted it by Hayden in the Bray goal.

Karl Chambers was harshly sent off for a second yellow 25 minutes in and that gave Longford an uphill battle. The seagulls got their equalizer right before half time taking advantage of the extra man, John Martin finished up a well worked move when he tapped in from close range.

Bray dominated possession in large parts of the second half but Longford held strong and could have taken the lead through Jack Doherty and Dean Byrne.

Bray finally got their winner n 88 minutes when Shane Elworthy was deemed to have pushed a Bray man in the penalty area. Anto Breslin was sent off in the aftermath and Dean Williams converted the spot kick to give Bray all three points.
