Bray Wanderers vs St. Patrick’s Athletic: Preview and Predictions

Bray Wanderers vs St. Patrick’s Athletic
Ireland – Premier Division
Date: Friday, 1st June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Carlisle Grounds (Bray).

Bray Wanderers sit rock-bottomed on Premier Division table with just eight points earned in 20 games and a three-game losing streak now behind them, hosting St. Patrick’s Athletic for their Matchday 20 clash in an attempt to bounce back after losses at Cork (4-0), Derry (2-0), and Dundalk (5-0).

Seagulls have failed to score any goals along the way and this could be even more worrying but Graham Kelly’s men have been a tougher side at Carlisle Grounds recently. They’ve earned wins over Shamrock Rovers and Derry City since mid-April, losses to Limerick and Bohemians, as well as a thriller 2-2 draw against Waterford in their last outing here.

St. Patrick’s have been better and sit in the mid-table but they’ve seen two very disappointing losses – 3-0 at Shamrock Rovers and 1-3 to Cork City – in their last two outings and it could prove a task to bounce back. They’ve bagged just one win in last seven trips away from home and Bray will want to capitalize on such woes.
