Bray Wanderers vs Finn Harps
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 28th July 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Carlisle Grounds.
Can Bray Wanderers finally see an end to a dreadful run of three consecutive losses this Friday when they host Finn Harps at Carlisle Grounds?
Whilst the defeats to the likes of Dundalk and Cork City can be justified, the one from last weekend against relegation threatened St. Patrick’s Athl. certainly can’t be.
Harry Kenny was furious with his team’s defensive line which allowed three goals against the Pats to make it eight conceded goals in last three Premier Division fixtures.
Third-placed Derry City is now four points away and the Seagulls will be desperate to finally end the negative run and clinch three points on the home patch to stay in the race for the Europa League spots.
The visitors escaped the red zone thanks to back-to-back wins over fellow strugglers Drogheda United and Bohemians.
However, Ollie Horgan’s men failed to build on the fine displays on Monday when they dropped home points to Derry City who were too strong claiming a comfortable 0-2 win at Finn Park.
Bray Wanderers vs Finn Harps: Head to head
The Seagulls bagged as many as eight goals past the Harps in two head to head encounters between the two sides in 2017.
This includes a 0-3 win in mid-May this year from Finn Park when McCabe, Brennan and Greene bagged goals for Bray.
Bray Wanderers vs Finn Harps: Prediction
The only positive from the last weekend’s loss to the Pats is the fact the team’s top scorer Gary McCabe bagged a goal after a four-game break.
We can see McCabe increasing his tally (currently at 14 goals so far in the season) and leading the Wanderers to a comfortable home win to get them back in the battle for the third position in the Premier Division standings.
