Bohemians 0 Bray Wanderers 1
Kieran “Marty” Waters scored a vital late winner at Dalymount Park to maintain Bray Wanderers’s survival push.
The result, Bray’s second win on the spin, means Shelbourne are relegated while Bohemians remain in the mix to avoid the play-off spot as just two points now separates them, UCD and Bray going into the last game of the season.
Waters, scarcely in the game up until then, struck on 76 minutes. Collecting Kevin O’Connor’s pass, the winger showed great feet to ride two challenges and then curl his shot into the net off the far post.
The woodwork saved Bray on 67 minutes when Dinny Corcoran hit the crossbar.
