90'

There will be four minutes of added time to be played....

87'

ASSIST!

George Poynton (Shelbourne) provides the assist.

87'

GOAL!

Ally Gilchrist (Shelbourne) scores.

Gilchrist pokes home at the back post and makes it four on a really damaging night for the hosts. Poynton's corner found the ex-Derry City man free abd there it is. Shels 4 Bray 1! 

86'

Bray Wanderers are still pushing for a goal to get back into the game - but they have not been able to create anything at all... This has been a real statement of intent from Shels...

85'

Corner Kick

Brandon Kavanagh (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

82'

Richie O'Farrell is doing his best to get the Seagulls back into the game - but his efforts are in vain as Shelbourne hack the ball away in the end. Time is running out for the hosts now...

80'

Substitution

Brian McManus (in) - Ryan Brennan (out) (Shelbourne).

77'

Close for Bray Wanderers - but Richie O'Farrell scoops his shot over the bar - and it remains 3-1 to the visitors..

75'

64'

PENALTY SCORED!

Ryan Brennan (Shelbourne) scores from the penalty spot.

SHELS MAKE IT 3-1!

Ryan Brennan takes the spot-kick after a handball, and arrows it into the top corner, leaving Brian Maher with no chance. That may very well be that... 

63'

PENALTY SHELS!

62'

Substitution

Joe Doyle (in) - Gary Shaw (out) (Bray Wanderers).

59'

Not an awful lotto report on over the last couple of minutes - but JJ Lunney looks a cut above in the Shels midfield. He is breaking up the play with ease...

56'

Shelbourne are just looking to slow the game now after a spell of good Bray Wanderers pressure. The Seagulls look a different animal in the second-half...

53'

Corner Kick

Mark Byrne (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

53'

Corner Kick

Brandon Kavanagh (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

52'

Free Kick

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

51'

Good play from Bray Wanderers - and Brandon Kavanagh - results in a Darren Craven shot that is blocked by a Shels body, and the Reds hold firm... The corner comes to nothing...

48'

Close for Shelbourne as Dayle Rooney heads wide at the back post following Michael Barker's cross into the box - and Bray hold firm again...

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Bray Wanderers and Shelbourne has started.

45' + 3'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Bray Wanderers and Shelbourne.

45' + 1'

We will have three minutes of added time....

44'

That Shelbourne goal looks to have taken the life out of Bray Wanderers a tad - but they are still pushing forward and are impressing when given the chance to do so. The issue is Shelbourne look so strong defensively...

39'

ASSIST!

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) provides the assist.

39'

GOAL!

Ryan Brennan (Shelbourne) scores.

SHELS RETAKE THE LEAD!!!!

Ryan Brennan heads home at the back post after the ball was headed into his path by Kevin O'Connor following Georgie Poynton's free-kick went into the box... 2-1 to the Reds!

39'

Free Kick

George Poynton (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

37'

Darren Craven turns and shoots from the edge of the penalty area, but his shot goes out for a throw-in. I don't think he meant that one at all...

33'

Free Kick

Kevin O'Connor (Shelbourne) takes a free-kick.

31'

Corner Kick

Mark Byrne (Bray Wanderers) takes a corner-kick.

30'

We are still level at the Carlisle Grounds after half an hour, but the Seagulls are starting to turn the screw a bit here. Shels look a real threat however. 

27'

Richie O'Farrell shoots from distance but Brendan Clarke claims well under little pressure... 

25'

Since the withdrawal of Shane Farrell, John Ross Wilson has been operating as a right-winger, with Barker in right-back...

22'

The sun is starting to dip here at the Carlisle and it is causing havoc to me in the press-box along with the perspex screen. Meanwhile, both teams are going for this one...

19'

The 100-strong crowd is well and truly behind Bray Wanderers now who have the Reds by the racks... This has the potential to be a cracker...

16'

PENALTY SCORED!

Conor Clifford (Bray Wanderers) scores from the penalty spot.

BRAY LEVEL! 

Ryan Graydon is hauled down by a Shelbourne defender, and Clifford cooly dispatches it minimal fuss. Looked like JR Wilson took down Graydon but it may have been Barkey who just came on... 

15'

PENALTY BRAY!!

12'

Substitution

Michael Barker (in) - Shane Farrell (out) (Shelbourne).

11'

PENALTY SCORED!

Michael O'Connor (Shelbourne) scores from the penalty spot.

Brian Maher goes the right way but the ball goes under his hands and it is one-nil Shels. They deserved that after their good start! 

9'

Shane Farrell is down recieving treatment after a reckless lunge from Aaron Barry... Farrell is coming off and Shels have a spot-kick.. 

8'

Yellow Card

Aaron Barry (Bray Wanderers) is booked.

8'

PENALTY SHELS!

7'

Good opening for Shelbourne as Dayle Rooney crosses into the box, but the ball goes out of play - and Bray survive... 

4'

Corner Kick

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

3'

Shelbourne should be one-up already. Kevin O'Connor's free-kick falls to Ryan Brennan - and Maher gets down well to save. But the ball then falls to Ally Gilchrist - I think - and he blasts it over the bar... 

1'

GAME ON!

The game between Bray Wanderers and Shelbourne has kicked off.

0'

And Bray Wanderers are out on the pitch. You get the sense that this is a huge night for the Seagulls if they are to somehow claw back the Reds in the title race... Shelbourne are on their way out onto the pitch now as well...

0'

And the teams are finished their warm-ups, so kick-off is not far away now...

0'

Shelbourne forward Yoyo Mahdy is on the pitch, however he is on crutches - and that will be a worry for the Reds going forward... 

0'

Shelbourne are yet to taste defeat in the 2021 edition of the First Division, and their unbeaten record in the second tier stretches back to August 2019 when they fell to defeat away to Cobh Ramblers during their march to the First Division title.

Bray have the joint-best defensive record in the First Division this season – along with Shelbourne – only conceding 9 goals. But the Seagulls have only scored 11 compared to Shels’ 22.

Gary Cronin’s side have won three of their last four league games, while Shelbourne have won their last four on the bounce.

0'

Preview for tonight's game... 

0'

Two changes for Bray Wanderers this evening as Gary Shaw makes a return to the starting XI for the first time since April, while Darren Craven comes in for Steven Kinsella... 

Shels make one themselves as Yoyo Mahdy is replaced by Dayle Rooney.

Good evening folks and welcome to the Carlisle Grounds as Bray Wanderers host Shelbourne in the First Division. 

I'm Andrew Dempsey and I will be taking you all through tonight's action... 

KO at 7.30pm!
