Cork City failed to take advantage of Dundalk's draw as they were held to a draw by 10-man Bray Wanderers at Turner's Cross.

Having gone ahead through Gareth McDonagh in the 14th minute, Bray frustrated their hosts and even though right-back Michael Barker was red-carded just after the half-hour, they remained resolute.

While Garry Buckley did equalise for City within five minutes of the start of the second half, they could not find a winner.

Bray's goal caught them cold - Ismahil Akindade was allowed to saunter in from the right before McDonagh put his shot beyond Mark McNulty.

While Barker's dismissal for a wild lunge on John Dunleavy left Bray with a tougher task, they remained ahead at half-time.

Cork brought Danny Morrissey on and immediately the change reaped dividends as Buckley profited from Mark O'Sullivan's lay-off after Billy Dennehy's low cross, finishing well.

O'Sullivan had a great effort which drew a super save from McGuinness and Billy Dennehy and Buckley also went close but they couldn't find a winner.

Cork City: McNulty; Lenihan, Murray, D Dennehy, Dunleavy; G Morrissey, Healy; Morrison (D Morrissey h-t), Buckley (O'Shea 89), B Dennehy, O'Sullivan.

Bray Wanderers: McGuinness; Barker, Mitchell, Cooney, Gorman; Akinade, Kelly, Cassidy (O'Connor h-t), Zambra, Scully; McDonagh (Hughes 56).

Referee: D McKeon (Dublin).
