A solitary Adam Evans goal brought Bohemians another comfortable victory at the Carlisle Grounds to maintain their encouraging start to the season.

A third successive win, and third clean sheet, keeps Keith Long's Gypsies at the summit of the Premier Division table on goal difference. It also sets up an intriguing clash with champions, and joint leaders, Dundalk at Dalymount Park tomorrow night.

Bohemians dominated for sustained spells, finally getting their reward on 70 minutes when winger Evans swept home a Keith Buckley cross.

In a one-sided but scoreless first half, Bray's Derek Prendergast had a goal disallowed for offside before Bohs were inches from taking the lead on the half-hour.

Skipper Derek Pender's cross in from the right was set up by Dean Kelly for Kealan Dillon, whose volley shaved a post.

"It's set up nicely," said Bohs midfielder Roberto Lopes in relishing Dundalk's visit. "We'll be flying into this with loads of confidence, as will they.

"The pressure is more on them. They're probably shocked at the start we've made. "We're going to stick to our game-plan. We know what we can do and we'll get in their faces early."

Bray Wanderers - McGuinness; Barker, McNally, O'Reilly, Memery; Scully, McIvor (Onwubiko 83), Kelly, Gallagher, McGlynn (Hanlon h/t); Lyons (Durrad 69).

Bohemians - Delany; Pender, Prendergast, A. Murphy, Fitzgerald; Kavanagh, Lopes, Dillon (Creevy 59), Evans (Moore 90+2); Buckley, Kelly (Griffin 79).
