Adam Hanlon lands points for Bray

Limerick pay price for missing early chances at the Carlisle Grounds


Bray Wanderers 1

A late goal from substitute Adam Hanlon was enough for Bray Wanderers to record their fourth Premier Division victory of the season and move into fifth place in the table in a tense clash with Limerick at the Carlisle Grounds.

Limerick should have taken the lead on 22 minutes when a cross from Patrick Nzuzi on the left was swept wide from close range by Thomas McManus with the goal at his mercy.

Then a Shane Tracy free on the left was headed narrowly off-target by Stephen Folan as the visitors dominated the first-half exchanges.

Bray had another let-off on 50 minutes when goalkeeper Stephen McGuinness collided with a defender with the ball running loose to Tracy whose effort was taken off the line by Dave Webster.

The home side did have a chance on 62 minutes when a Jamie McGlynn cross from the left was just missed by the outstretched body of David Scully.

Hanlon had Bray in front on 81 minutes when he crashed the ball home at the far post – his first goal for the club. This came after Graham Kelly created the opening when Ismahil Akinade had been held up on the edge of the box.

BRAY WANDERERS: McGuinness; Cooney, Webster, Mitchell, McGlynn; Scully, G Kelly, Zambra, O’Neill (Hanlon 71); Cassidy, Akinade.
LIMERICK FC: Cusack; S Kelly, Oji, Folan, Nzuzi; Tracy (Mann 88), Agyemang, Hughes, Galbraith; Duggan, McManus.
