FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Bray Wanderers and St. Patrick's Athletic.

90' + 1'

Three minutes added on, with Pats seemingly cruising to victory.

85'

Great effort by Byrne as he runs in off his wing, controls a bouncing ball and hits a right-footed volley that bounces just past the far post.

83'

78'

A great chance for Byrne as a beautiful touch from Keegan plays him in, but Lynch does just enough to get beside him and make him scuff his shot.

77'

Substitution

Daniel Kelly replaces Paul O'Conor for Bray Wanderers.

75'

Great cross from Lynch after Graham Kelly is caught dribbling out of his own area, but both Greene and JAke Kelly can't get their heads to it.

74'

McCabe nearly picks out Greene with a through-ball but Toner does well to get in front of him and clear.

66'

McCabe's free kick beats everyone and is possibly sneaking inside the post, only for Murphy to grasp it in his hands. Good save from the keeper.

62'

Substitution

Jake Kelly replaces Cory Galvin for Bray Wanderers.

61'

Madden's cross causes confusion in the Bray box, and Heaney is challenged by Keegan, who can only head into the arms of Dillon.



58'

A super cross is zipped in by Clarke in Keegan's direction and Heaney is forced to head it over.

52'

Simon Madden cuts in on his left foot and tries his luck from outside the box but he gets too much elevation on it.

51'

Substitution

Jake Keegan replaces Christy Fagan for St. Patrick's Athletic.

50'

Yellow Card

Aaron Greene is booked for Bray Wanderers.

46'

Second Half

The second half between Bray Wanderers and St. Patrick's Athletic has started.

45' + 3'

Half Time

It is half-time between Bray Wanderers and St. Patrick's Athletic.

45' + 1'

Two minutes added on. Bray enjoying a purple patch as half time approaches.

45'

McCabe wins a free kick on the left and has a very ambitious go from 30 yards but it's well over the bar.

41'

A Kevin Lynch corner is sailing in at the far corner before a well-timed header sees it off the line, nd moments later Coughlan sees his shot cleared off the line by Desmond.

36'

35'

Another chance for Fagan as Kelly gets into the box and tees up the striker, but on his left foot he can't generate the power to beat Dillon, who spills at first but gathers the ball before Clarke can poke it home.

34'

Not too far away from Graham Kelly as he nods Byrne's cross past the post, and Markey can't get on the end of it.



30'

How have Pats not scored again? Garvan swings a corner to the back post where Desmond traps the ball and pokes a shot at goal, which Dillon blocks. Dean Clarke scuffs his follow-up to Fagan, who must score but sees a defender deflect it off the line!

27'

Yellow Card

Owen Garvan is booked for St. Patrick's Athletic.

25'

A testing free kick into the box from Garvan sees Dillon punch clear but not particularly convincing from the Blackburn Rovers loanee.

20'

GOAL!

Gary McCabe scores for Bray Wanderers. First chance, first goal for Bray as Aaron Greene picks out McCabe in acres in the box, and he finishes spectacularly in the top corner.

18'

Chance of an opening for Bray as McCabe spreads it wide for Ronan Coughlan, but a good clearance at full stretch by Lee Desmond snuffs it out.

14'

GOAL!

Christy Fagan scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. Dean Clarke runs half the pitch unopposed and hooks it back for Fagan to slot it under Dillon from six yards.

12'

Another half-chance for Byrne on the edge of the box, and Kevin Lynch deflects his shot behind for a corner, which is easily headed clear by Hugh Douglas.

6'

After a breathless opening minute or so this has settled into a keep-ball pattern for the Saints. Bray are putting next to no pressure on the ball and looking to play deep.

5'

2'

GOAL!

Conan Byrne scores for St. Patrick's Athletic. The away fans are still streaming and many will have missed the opening goal. A free kick is floated into the box and Byrne has lots of times to steady himself and sidefoot a volley that loops over Aaron Dillon and into the net.

St Patrick's Athletic kick us off here as they win the toss and elect to shoot into the main road end.

GAME ON!

The game between Bray Wanderers and St. Patrick's Athletic has kicked off.

The teams are out (screenshot below) and the big news from a Saints perspective is the return of Christy Fagan after he missed last week's 3-2 defeat to Cork City through illness. Bray are unchanged from the team that drew 0-0 against Dundalk at Oriel Park on the opening day,
