Bray need one more point to ensure safety
EIRCOM LEAGUE WANDERERS PLAYING COBH AT CARLISLE GROUNDS
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.
