The game has ended with a 4-2 win for Bray Wanderers over Shamrock Rovers. The game turned over a crazy last four minutes and injury time for the opening period. Rovers had been on top and led on 41 minutes but went off losing 3-1. It didn't get any better in the second half for the Hoops as Bray ran out 4-2 winners as they stay in third spot in the table. Hope you enjoyed the updates. Match report to follow shortly. Slán, Macdara.

We are less than an hour away from kick off. To pass the time how about checking out about my match preview here. Lots on Gary McCabe who comes up against his former team. He is one of nine players who were previously on the books with the Hoops. Bray boss Harry Kenny and assistant manager Liam O'Brien played with Rovers at Milltown.
