Quigley denies Seagulls

Dundalk 2 Bray Wanderers 2

DUNDALK and Bray Wanderers both remain stuck in mid-table after an entertaining draw at Oriel Park.

The Seagulls came from behind to go 2-1 in front, but Mark Quigley's second goal of the game earned Dundalk a fifth draw in six games.

Ian Foster's side pulled ahead in the 14th minute. Marc Griffin was pushed in the box by Derek Prendergast and Quigley slotted home the penalty.

The visitors drew level in first-half stoppage-time. Chris Shields delivered a great cross from the right and Danny O'Connor nodded it past Peter Cherrie.

Bray went in front in the 54th minute when Dean Kelly's magnificent delivery from the right was glanced home by Dean Zambra.

The Bray fans were still celebrating when Dundalk pulled level. Simon Madden's lofted ball found Quigley on the right and he guided a delightful lob to the net to bring his tally to 17 in all competitions this season.
