Sam Oji own-goal keeps Bray Wanderers' winning streak going

Victory makes it four 1-0 wins in a row for Bray Wanderers

Galway United 0 Bray Wanderers 1
Galway defender Sam Oji scored a last-minute own-goal at Eamonn Deacy Park as Bray Wanderers notched their fourth win in a row. Mick Cooke's side move ahead of Galway in the table with this win after substitute Oji deflected a cross from David Cassify into his own net.

That makes it four 1-0 wins in a row for Bray.

Both sides had early opportunities, Jake Keegan curled his effort just wide of Peter Cherrie's goalmouth and Padraic Cunningham's shot was cleared by Alan McNally. But Bray should have taken the lead when they were awarded a penalty after four minutes.

Chris Lyons was fouled by Stephen Walsh in the Galway box but Conor Winn got down to save from Graham Kelly.


Galway survived and should have punished the visitors in the 15th minute when Pádraid Cunningham was clear through one-on-one with Cherrie but the Bray goalkeeper was equal to it. Ryan McEvoy, Lyons and Cassidy all tested Winn before the end of the first half but the sides went in 0-0 at the break.

Galway had more of the territory after half-time but missed Ryan Connolly who went off injured after 20 minutes. Oji and Walsh stopped John Sullivan's shot on the Galway line. But Bray snatched the points in stoppage time when Oji turned the ball into his own net.
