Stalemate here at the Belfield Bowl, a 0-0 draw,both sides will be happy enough with a point as they each more or less dominated a half of the game, UCD were very much to the fore in the opening 45 mins while Bray did everything but score in the second 45 mins.
Thats it from Belfield, goodnight, hope you enjoyed the live updates.
Both sides trying to force a goal but its looking like a draw here. Last chance for Bray, free on the half way line but again no end result from it.

Long ball over the top finds Joe Doyle but Healy is quickly off his line to clear the danger
Bray have started the better of the two teams in the third quarter, with Graydon and Kavanagh most prominent as attacking forces .

UCD have claims for a penalty turned away by the referee after Evan Weir was upended in the box
Luca Lovic takes a knock in midfield but he is ok to continue after attention from the Bray physio
Bray have started and finished well but in between UCD dominated the game , their pace and slick passing causing lots of problems for the visitors. There are no goals to show for their efforts however and Bray centre back and captain Aaron Barry will be happy that he and his defensive colleagues have kept the students at bay in the opening 45 mins.
1 minute added time to play
Bray now weathering tbe UCD storm and they will be glad to go into half time break on level terms

No changes in the starting line up for UCD , not surprisingly after their comprehinsive 4-0 win away to Cobh Ramblers last weekend.
The team sheets are in and Bray show two changes in their starting eleven from the side that started against Shelbourne last week. Conor Clifford and Gary Shaw are out with Luca Lovic and Stephen Kinsella coming in.
