Captain Danny bows out


Wanderers face a challenging trip to Richmond Park on Friday without club Captain Danny OíConnor, who has announced his retirement following injuries that have restricted him to just a handful of appearances this season.

Goalkeeper Shane Redmond, who was sent off in Bray's final game before the mid season break against Bohemians, will also have to sit out the clash with St Patís as he serves a one-match ban.

Defender Adam Mitchell has a groin injury, Eric McGill is struggling with a knee problem, and Dave Scully is doubtful with an ankle injury.

Manager Alan Mathews says he will give all three late fitness tests before a decision is made.

Pats defenders Kenny Browne and Ken Oman will be unavailable due to suspension, while Sean Hoare will face a fitness test on an ankle injury before the game.

* Earlier this season at the Carlisle Grounds, where St Pats had been unbeaten in their previous seven visits, they recorded another victory, a 3-1 win

* Bray have been awarded 5 penalties this season while 6 have been awarded against them
