Published 24/09/2011 | 05:00
(Tallaght Stadium, 3.0)
League form: Bray DLLLW, Shamrock Rovers WWWLD
Match odds: Shamrock Rovers 1/5, Bray 12/1 Draw 5/1
Referee: R Winter (Wicklow)
Team news: Danny O'Connor returns for Bray, as does Kevin Knight, but key man Gary Dempsey is a doubt after limping off against UCD before the end of their 4-0 win. Dean Kelly (groin) and Ken Oman (knee) remain out of the Hoops squad through injury, while there are doubts over Craig Sives, who has a groin problem.
Talking point: Rovers have not beaten the Seagulls this season and Michael O'Neill will need his men to have their eyes on the ball ahead of their trip to White Hart Lane next Thursday. Retaining the league title is in their own hands, but the Hoops' schedule is punishing and this is a big banana skin.
Verdict: Home win.
