Lee Duffy smashes one way over the bar to bring to an end what was some nice cute link up play by Athlone in midfield.

Drogheda are now in the lead which means the FAI official who has the trophy in his car may be heading back towards Dublin if Cabo can't do Bray a favour.

61'

We have word that the trophy is currently in Enfield - presumably the Applegreen having a pastry and a cup of tea. If things stay the same it will need to make an essential journey down to Athlone Town Stadium.

60'

Bray with a great chance there to get a second goal but instead of getting a shot from 8 yards out, they square the ball and the home side scamper the ball clear.

57'

He's up and is hoping off under his own weight but it doesn't look massivly promising it does have to be said.

56'

Darragh Lynch is down in a bad way at the moment. The physio has been on now for a good minute or two and it looks like we may need a stretcher.

49'

Keegan with a silly foul on the edge of the box that he is lucky not to get booked for. Manning's free kick though fails to clear the wall.

47'

Lennon with a good shot that has to be saved by Maher down low after Manning brought the ball into the final third for Athlone Town.

46'

Substitution

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

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Athlone Town and Bray Wanderers has started.

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Athlone Town and Bray Wanderers. Bray head into half time at the summit of the FIrst DIvision table. What an exciting 45 minutes we have here in Athlone and around the league. Bray well, well on top in terms of chances and time on the ball in the first half.

44'

GOAL!

Ryan Graydon (Bray Wanderers) scores. Graydon finishes after he gets on the end of yet another cross into the box. IF THINGS STAY AS THEY ARE Bray will be CHAMIPIONS!!

43'

Yellow Card

Scott Delaney (Athlone Town) is booked.

42'

Manning with alow free kick that fails to clear the first man in what is a poor delivery but straight down the other end and Keegan almost gets his head on a cross before a few seconds laster Keegan crosses in towards Graydon who can only head at Myles. What a flurry of chances at both ends that was.

41'

Yellow Card

Sean McEvoy (Bray Wanderers) is booked.

38'

A great ball into the box for Athlone is shinned just wide at the back post. Close to Athlone taking a surprise and perhaps undeserved lead.

37'

Yellow Card

Ryan Graydon (Bray Wanderers) is booked.

33'

Bray off the post! They are all over Athlone but have little to show for it so far on the scoreboard.

32'

Bray with their millionth ball into the box and for the millionth time it is headed away by Brookes.

27'

Bray with a short free kick that had been worked on recently on the training but Brookes ruins the fun and gets a block on the cross.

22'

Substitution

John Morgan (in) - Jack Reynolds (out) (Athlone Town).

20'

Jack Reynolds seems to be in a bad way on the far side of the pitch and looks like they may have to be replaced. The physio is over dealing with him now

17'

Bray bombarding the Athlone box with crosses now as the latest cross is just about cleared by captain Scott Delaney despite his miss kicked connection.

16'

OH SO CLOSE FOR BRAY as Cantwell wraps around the back post and heads across the goal with his low header hitting the post and bouncing wide. What a chance with the centre back completly unmarked.

14'

Maher has to be at his best to deny Athlone from close range.

12'

Bray are depending on Drogheda to NOT win tonight in order to give them a chance to snatch the title.

10'

Another corner from Bray, this time is met with the head of Aaron Barry but is easily saved by Aaron Myles in the home sides goal mouth.

9'

Bray only arrived at about 7pm so it was a very quick warm up for Gary Cronin's men before kick off. Covid checkpoints on the motorway delaying their journey down.

7'

The rain and the wind do not make for ideal playing conditions in Athlone this evening.

6'

Bray with the better of the possession so far but their crosses have been poor and easily dealt with by Athlone.

5'

Bray with the games opening corner kick but it is headed clear by Brookes and off the ball goes up the other end once more.

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Athlone Town and Bray Wanderers has kicked off.
