Bray need one more point to en­sure safety


Bray People - - Bray Sport - Daniel GOR­MAN

BRAY WAN­DER­ERS go into this Fri­day’s clash with rel­e­ga­tion threat­ened Cobh Ram­blers on the back of an event­ful week.

Af­ter their fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties were made pub­lic Bray Wan­der­ers staff, fans and play­ers were prob­a­bly all wish­ing that the end of the sea­son would come sooner rather than later.

A point on Fri­day will en­sure the Seag­ulls are safe for an­other year and once that am­bi­tion is re­al­ized it will be pats on the back all around for every­one at Bray Wan­der­ers.

Bray’s form over­all this sea­son has been odd to say the least. The best way to de­scribe it is that Bray have been con­sis­tently in­con­sist­net.

Bray have twice beaten League Cup win­ners and FAI Cup fi­nal­ists Derry City this sea­son and are re­spon­si­ble for 16.666 per cent of Bo­hemi­ans goals against col­umn.

They have taken points off ev­ery team in the league this sea­son, beat­ing seven of the 11 other teams in the league along the way.

That sounds like a side who have had an en­joy­able sea­son, but then Bray go to Ter­ry­land Park and get ham­mered 4-0.

No­body ex­pects Bray to be up there bat­tling it out with Bohs et al come the last few weeks of the sea­son as the re­al­ity of the sit­u­a­tion is Bray are a part time out­fit as Ed­die Gorm­ley al­ways points out and there’s lim­i­ta­tions to what fans can hope for.

Avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion will al­ways be the num­ber one tar­get and Bray look set to main­tain their Premier Divi­son sta­tus for a club record fifth time in a row and that is an achieve­ment not to be sniffed at.

As re­gards this Fri­day’s game, Bray have beaten Cobh in their two pre­vi­ous meet­ings with them this sea­son and al­though Cobh are in a great run of late, hope­fully for the fans sake Bray will win the match be­cause the fans de­serve it.
