Galway United vs Bray Wanderers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 23rd June 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Eamonn Deacy Park.
Bray Wanderers finally managed to see an end to their crisis last Friday when they picked up a highly important 3-2 win over top-half rivals Derry City on the home patch.
The Seagulls will have a nice opportunity to make it two on the bounce in the 19th round of the competition when they travel to Eamonn Deacy Park to take on the struggling Galway United side.
The hosts share the rock-bottom of the standings with no more than 15 points after 18 Premier Division rounds.
The Tribesmen took most of their points on the home patch where they suffered only a single defeat in last nine encounters.
Avoiding the relegation scrap at the end of the season will require improvements in the defensive line since Shane Keegan’s men kept only a single clean sheet in last 11 league outings.
Harry Kenny also experienced huge problems with his team’s defensive line as the Seagulls allowed at least two goals in each of their last four matches. This includes a catastrophic 5-3 defeat to Limerick in their last away fixture.
The attack has, however, been doing the job on the other side of the court. Gary McCabe is the most lethal of Kenny’s weapons having notched 13 goals so far in the season.
Galway United vs Bray Wanderers: Head to head
Bray Wanderers made it all square at three wins for each of the teams with back-to-back wins in last two H2H encounters with Galway United.
Moreover, the Tribesmen failed to find the back of the net in each of the last two outings.
Galway United vs Bray Wanderers: Prediction
Considering how poor both teams have been at the back in the recent days, we’d be very surprised to see any of them keeping a clean sheet here.
This shapes the Over 2.5 goals FT bet as a banker at the sky-high 4/5 odds, while braver punters will chase Bray to win & BTTS.
