Bray Wanderers vs Derry City
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 16th June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Carlisle Grounds.
Bray Wanderers will host Derry City in one of the most interesting fixtures of the Matchday No 19 in the Irish Premier Division.
The hosts must not afford a defeat if they want to stay in touch with both Derry City and Dundalk in the battle for the second position.
This will be easier said than done for harry Kenny and his men who have been on a horrendous run over the last couple of weeks.
The Seagulls are winless in last five matches and they suffered three losses along the way.
The team conceded as many as seven goals in back-to-back defeats to Shamrock Rovers and Limerick in last two rounds.
The visitors, on the other side, are undefeated in last ten Premier Division outings.
Kenny Shiels’ and his men have thus raised their form just at the perfect moment since the first qualifying round for Europa League is just around the corner.
Derry claimed a super important 2-1 win over Shamrock Rovers in the previous round.
