Match Preview by James Donnelly
SSE AIRTRICITY LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION
Bray Wanderers FC v Longford Town FC
Friday 14th June 2019 | Kick-off: 7.45pm
Longford Town make the trip to the Carlisle Grounds for the first time in three years tonight as they take on Bray Wanderers in a 7.45pm kick off.
De Town go into tonight’s game off the back of a dramtic 1-0 win over Wexford FC at the City Calling Stadium last weekend. A 91st minute goal from super sub Jamie Doyle broke Wexford hearts and gained all 3 points for Neale Fenn and co.
Bray narrowly lost out to Shelbourne last week. A well taken free kick from Karl Moore early in the first half was the sole effort that seperated the sides after 90 minutes.
With Wanderers currently in 6th on 25 points, 8 points behind 2nd place Longford, a win tonight is vital for the home side. Former Longford Town player, assistant & caretaker Manager Gary Cronin is Manager of Bray and will no doubt be looking for a response from his team.
Earlier in the season, Longford had a comfortable 2-0 victory at the City Calling Stadium over our opponents tonight. Neale Fenn will be hoping that the team can continue their fine form ad come away from the Carlisle Grounds with all 3 points before the break.
In terms of team news for De Town, Paul O’Conor and Kevin Knight are both out with Aodh Dervin doubtful.
For Bray, midfielder Brandon McCann is doubtful.
