Finn Harps 0-3 Bray Wanderers
Ollie Horgan watched from the Stand as his Finn Harps side slid down to bottom of the League of Ireland Premier Division after
Bray Wanderers recorded a comfortable 3-0 win in Ballybofey last night.
It’s been an extremely difficult month for Harps who have now lost four games on the trot. It’s was a different story for Bray who got back to winning after only picking up one point from their previous two outings. This victory keeps Harry Kenny’s side second in the table behind runaways leaders Cork City, who dropped points for the first time this season having been held at Galway United.
The visitors were 2-0 up at the break thanks to goals from Gary McCabe and Ryan Brennan while Aaron Greene added a third late in the game. Harps went behind after just six minutes when McCabe’s super strike gave Ciaran Gallagher no chance. Five minutes before the break it was 2-0 as Brennan’s low angled drive went past the Harps keeper.
The hosts created precious few chances with Kilian Cantwell having a close range blocked and in the second half a Caolan McAleer cross found Danny Morrissey but the situation didn’t trouble Peter Cherrie. Sean Houston’s effort on 75 minutes did force the Bray goalkeeper into a rare save.
The Co. Wicklow outfit made sure of the three points when Greene went right through the heart of the home defence to slip the ball past Gallagher on 80 minutes.
