Wexford FC head to the Carlisle Grounds tomorrow evening still looking for a first away win of the season but face a rejuvenated Bray Wanderers side looking for a third win in a row. This will be Wexford's second visit to Bray this season, the sides met in the EA Cup 1st Round back in March, the Seagulls advancing to the next stage of the competition with a 3-2 victory (Ryan Nolan and Sean Roche with the Wexford goals). Wexford avenged that Cup defeat in the first ever League encounter between the sides three weeks later at Ferrycarrig Park, Emmet Nugent and Jack Doherty scoring two stunning goals in our first win and points of the season. 

Bray head into the game tomorrow on the back of two good wins on the bounce, first thumping Athlone in Lissywollen 5-0 and following that up with a 2-1 victory over Galway United at the Carlisle Grounds on Monday night. Wanderers had to come from a goal down in the first half to take all three points against Galway, Hughie Douglas heading in both of their second half goals, the winner coming in the 86th minute. That win saw Gary Cronin's side jump up to 5th in the table and despite an inconsistent start to the season for them (5 defeats in their 13 League games), they are now just 4 points off top spot. Bray were one of the pre season favourites to win the First Division outright and return straight back up to the top flight after their 2018 Premier Division relegation.

Wexford will be hoping to repeat that March performance against the Wicklow side and grab that elusive first away win of the season tomorrow night. Wexford remain on the bottom of the First Division with 8 points from 13 games but performances have improved greatly since getting the first points of the season in that League win over Bray at Ferrycarrig (Wexford had lost all 6 of their League and Cup games before that 2-0 victory). The record on the road is poor however, just 1 point (away to Limerick) in the 7 away games so far. Wexford will also be looking to bounce back from last weeks 2-1 home defeat to Shelbourne, the Dublin side had a little luck on the night with both of their goals before a late Jack Doherty consolation strike. Wexford's last away trip (to Eamonn Deacy Park vs Galway) ended in a 2-0 defeat.

In injury news, Brian O'Sullivan will have a full strength squad to choose from tomorrow night although captain Chris Kenny has struggled with a groin injury this week and may face a late fitness test before the game.

Kick off at the Carlisle Grounds on Friday is at 7:45pm.
