Sligo Rovers Vie For First Win Of The Season

Sligo Rovers welcome Bray Wanderers to the Showgrounds this Good Friday evening with both teams struggling for points this season.

Sligo Rovers boss Owen Heary will be hoping his charges can get their first win of the season after picking up just two points so far.

After losing to Dundalk last time out in Oriel Park the pressure will be on the Bit O’ Red to beat the team at the bottom.

Bray Wanderers will be playing their first game under caretaker manager Maciej Tarnogrodzki following the resignation of Alan Mathews and his entire management team in recent days.

The Seagulls come into this game having not won, nor scored a goal all season.

Sligo are again without the injured duo of goalkeeper Richard Brush and defender Jeff Henderson. Stephen Beattie is also a doubt for the game as he’s suffering from a sore hamstring. In more positive news Heary welcomes midfield supremo John Russell back into the fold.

Speaking to ahead of the game, Heary said,

“It’s been a very good week of training for us. All the lads have worked extremely hard.

“I think I am close to finding what our best 11 is. We have reflected on the games so far with my coaching staff to see what works.

“I think that the team we put out tomorrow should be close to the strongest 11 that we have here. Obviously that doesn’t mean that the players who aren’t picked are not good enough, it is a squad game and everyone has a part to play.”

Kick-off in the Showgrounds is at 17:45.
