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
Carlisle Grounds

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.

Town go top after victory over Bray

Longford Town moved back to the top of the SSE Airtricity First Division as goals from Mick McDonnell and Peter Hopkins earned the Midlanders a comfortable two-nil victory over Bray Wanderers at the City Calling Stadium.

The Town took the lead in the eighth minute when Breslin’s corner picked out the Towering McDonnell whose downward header found the back of the Bray net.

The next decent opportunity arrived on twenty-eight minutes when Adam Evan’s effort from a tight angle on the left was saved by Bray keeper Gabriel Sava.

The Town doubled their advantage on thirty-three minutes when a sumptuous defence-splitting pass from Aodh Dervin put in winger Hopkins, he zoomed in on goal, calmly rounded Bray keeper Sava and slotted in the home side’s second goal.

Bray almost pulled a goal back on forty-three minutes but Killian Cantwell’s shot flashed just wide of the Town post.

The ‘Red & Black’ almost went three up on seventy-eight minutes. A superb reverse pass from Sean Brennan found Sam Verdon in space on the edge of the Bray box, but his curling strike which seemed destined for the bottom right-corner of the net was brilliantly saved by Sava.


TEAM LINE-UPS

Longford Town: Steacy, Elworthy, McDonnell, Kenna, Breslin, Zambra, Hopkins, Brennan, Dervan, Evans, Verdon.
Substitutions: Byrne for Evans (81 minutes), O’Connor for Brennan (87 minutes), Chambers for Hopkins (89 minutes).

Bray Wanderers: Sava, Nolan, Douglas, Heaney, Barnett, McGlade, Purdy, Cantwell, Keegan, Daly, O’Halloran.
