FULL TIME!

The game has ended between UCD and Bray Wanderers.

90' + 2'

Paul Keegan does well to find space behind the UCD defence but his shot is saved by Lorcan Healy in the UCD goal. That really would have wrapped things up there...

Substitution

Paul Keegan (in) - Harry McEvoy (out) (Bray Wanderers).

80'

Was Whelan's last effort on goal the final chance for UCD to get back in the game? Perhaps it was as the Students have slowly started to struggle to piece together attacks. Bray look comfortable to be fair to them...

77'

Substitution

Jack Watson (in) - Ryan Graydon (out) (Bray Wanderers).

75'

Colm Whelan now goes close for UCD but his shot is saved by Brian Maher in the Bray Wanderers goal... What a huge save from the Ireland under-19 keeper that was! 

74'

UCD call for a spot-kick but referee Ray Matthews turns away the protests from the Students. I'm not sure there was an awful lot in that to be fair to the ref...

72'

Word is just comiong thriough that Drogheda United are LOSING at home to Athlone Town.... Ronan Manning with a goal from the spot... Oh my days, this title race has jiust got VERY interesting!

Aaron Barry (Bray Wanderers) is booked.

61'

ASSIST!

Darragh Lynch (Bray Wanderers) provides the assist.

61'

GOAL!

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) scores.

DYLAN BARNETT MAKES IT 3-1 TO BRAY! 

Barnett's low free-kick goes under the palm of Lorcan Healy's hands and nestles in the bottom corner of the net as the Seagulls take a two-goal lead. Barnett deserved that! 

61'

Free Kick

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) takes a free-kick.

60'

Yellow Card

Jack Keaney (UCD) is booked.

55'

Sean McEvoy does well with a shot from deep but Lorcan Healy is more than equal to the danger on hand and UCD do well to clear the danger. It remains UCD 1 - 2 Bray Wanderers...

53'

Free Kick

Jack Keaney (UCD) takes a free-kick.

51'

Free Kick

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) takes a free-kick.

50'

Luke Boore looked to be in a bit of trouble there and Darragh Lynch went down - It looked like a penalty from where I was but Ray Matthews says no! 

48'

ASSIST!

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) provides the assist.

48'

GOAL!

Darragh Lynch (Bray Wanderers) scores.

BRAY RETAKE THE LEAD THROUGH DARRAGH LYNCH. 

Darragh Lynch pokes home following a Dylan Barnett free-kick into the penalty area. What an introduction that was from Lynch. That's his fifth goal of the season. 2-1 Bray! 

48'

Free Kick

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) takes a free-kick.

47'

CLOSE FOR BRAY! 

Darragh Lynch's flick-on falls into the path of Joe Doyle who fires wide of goal - he really should have at least got that on target!

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between UCD and Bray Wanderers has started.

45' + 1'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between UCD and Bray Wanderers.

45'

We are now into injury time of the first-half. I'm not sure how long we have left in this half...

44'

Yellow Card

Darragh Lynch (Bray Wanderers) is booked.

42'

GOAL!

Colm Whelan (UCD) scores.

UCD LEVEL THROUGH COLM WHELAN! 

Whelan goes on a great run after being found in plenty of space in the Bray penalty area. He shoots first at Maher but he does well to take his second chance and equalise for the Students. 1-1! That was coming it must be said! 

38'

UCD's Liam Kerrigan goes on a great burrowing run through the Bray Wanderers defence but he skies his effort well over the bar after falling into his shot somewhat. He should have done more with that...

36'

Substitution

Darragh Lynch (in) - Gary Shaw (out) (Bray Wanderers).

36'

Corner Kick

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

34'

CLOSE! 

Gary SHaw goes close for the visitors after getting on the end of a Joe Doyle through ball but Lorcan Healy does well to beat the ball away from danger as UCD survive. You get the feeling that this next goal is going to be crucial....

32'

Yellow Card

Paul Doyle (UCD) is booked.

30'

Gary Shaw does well to get in behind the UCD defence, bjut his cross is batted away by Lorcan Healy in the UCD goal. He is moving gingerly however after that. I'm not too sure if he will last much longer...

29'

Corner Kick

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

26'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

25'

CLOSE FOR UCD! 

Colm Whelan turns Aaron Barry and goes mightily close but the ball goes straight at Brian Maher. Yoyo Mahdy then sees the rebound come to him but his header is turned away somehow by Maher in the Bray goal. That was a real let-off for Bray on that occasion...

24'

Evan Weoire sends in a ball from deep to try and find either Yoyo Mahdy or Colm Whelan but the ball has too much on it and Brian Maher collects with ease. Bray remain in control of the game this evening...

21'

I can only assume that Jack Keaney has been put in the central defence to deal with Gary Shaw - but even at that I'm not too sure of the ex-Sligo man playing there. Perhaps I will be proven wrong...

20'

Corner Kick

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

18'

Interestingly, Jack Keaney is being used as a central defender in the absence of Josh Collins. This has been far from an ideal performance so far from the Students...

16'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

15'

Better from UCD as Paul Doyle goes clsoe with a shot from distance but it is deflected wide from Brian Maher's goal. UCD need to do a bit more of this if they are to get back into the game...

14'

Free Kick

Evan Weir (UCD) takes a free-kick.

11'

Bray Wanderers are camped inside the UCD half of the pitch and they look like they could score wiyth each attack they come up with.. Luka Lovic is the next to go close but Lorcan Healy saves well - although it was straight at him to be fair..

8'

Corner Kick

Callum Thompson (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

6'

BRAY HIT THE POST! 

What a start this has been from the Seagulls who see Gary Shaw's shot crash off the post following a Dylan Barnett free-kick into the penalty area. Bray Wanderers have strated like a house on fire here! 

5'

Free Kick

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) takes a free-kick.

3'

ASSIST!

Dylan Barnett (Bray Wanderers) provides the assist.

3'

GOAL!

Gary Shaw (Bray Wanderers) scores.

BRAY TAKE THE LEAD! Gary Shaw buries home a great cross into the box form Dylan Barnett. The ball fell to the ex-Longford forward who slotted the ball home through the legs of Lorcan Healy! 1-0 Bray!

UCD have not defeated Bray Wanderers at home in their previous four attempts, with their most recent win over the Seagulls at the Bowl coming in 2012.

Gary Cronin’s Bray Wanderers have the best defensive record in this year’s First Division, conceding 14 goals in the same number of games.

UCD have lost their last two league games at home – the first was against Galway United while their most recent defeat at the UCD Bowl came against Drogheda United.
