Cork City vs Bray Wanderers: Preview and Prediction

Cork City vs Bray Wanderers
League of Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 18 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Turner’s Cross (Cork).

In the 18th round of Irish Premier Division, Cork City are going to host Bray Wanderers.

The defending champions are on their mission of retaining the trophy and they are sitting on the 2nd place being two points behind Dundalk, however their rivals played one game more. They have celebrated three wins in the last five occasions and Graham Cummins and the lads are doing a very good job in front of the oppositions’ goal. Cork City are simply perfect when playing at home venue as they haven’t allowed a single point to their visitors in seven matches.

Bray Wanderers are having severe troubles this season as they are hammered to the bottom of the table. They suffered 13 defeats in 17 rounds and scored only 11 goals. Graham Kelly’s side is awful in the back as they conceded 41 times and they definitely need to improve their defending if they want to catch up Limerick who are five points ahead of them. The visitors managed to snatch just a point from away pitches this season.

Cork City vs Bray Wanderers: Head-to-head

Cork City celebrated five straight victories against their opposition and in the last four they managed to keep the clean sheet. In the last five years, Bray Wanderers managed to beat their rivals just once.

Cork City vs Bray Wanderers: Prediction

The hosts are absolute favourites in this one and they shouldn’t miss the chance of booking easy three points. They are dominant in every area in compare to their opponent and they should be in control of this clash.

Since the visitors are having great troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net, especially when playing away from home, we shouldn’t expect from them to produce anything. Cork City should be capable of keeping another clean sheet.
