David Cassidy foul the nasty lowlight as Bray hold Limerick scoreless

The home side also finished with 10 men as Shane Duggan received a second yellow card, and his marching orders, for a dive.

LIMERICK AND BRAY played out a scoreless draw at Thomond Park which saw both sides finish with 10 men. Shane Duggan received his second yellow for simulation just before David Cassidy received a straight red for a vicious foul on Shane Tracy.

Jake Kelly had the best opportunity of the opening half — his shot from 18 yards just flashed past the near post. Moments beforehand, it was Kelly again who broke down the left. His shot was well pushed away by Limerick goalkeeper Shane Cusack.

Samuel Oji had Limerick’s best chance of the game a corner from the right was met with a ferocious header just Shane Redmond did well to tip over the bar. Rory Gaffney’s menacing runs featured heavily but couldn’t produce enough to find that elusive goal for the home side.

Both red cards landed within minutes of each other and killed the game off completely. Neither side will be happy with result, but Bray had the better of the chances on the night. Alan Mathews will be disappointed that his side’s ill-discipline potentially cost them three points.

Limerick FC: Cusack; Kelly, Oji, Folan, Williams; Nzuzi (Feeney, 51 ), Hughes , Duggan ; Tracy, Gaffney, Rainsford.
Bray Wanderers: Redmond; McGill, Webster, Mitchell, Maloney; Hanlon, S Byrne, Zambra, Kelly; Cassidy ; C Byrne (Akinade 62).

Referee: Kevin O’Regan.
