Ramblers v Bray | Preview

Cobh Ramblers return to St Colman’s Park this Saturday night, hosting Bray Wanderers in the latest round of First Division action.

The game marks manager Darren’s Murphy’s first since signing a new two year contract at the club last week, and is also a first home game since August 21st.

These two Seaside clubs have met twice so far this season, drawing 1-1 in Cobh before secured a 2-1 win in the Carlisle Grounds. Ramblers’ last win over Bray came in a 1-0 victory in May 2019.

The Rams currently sit ninth in the table, and come into the game on the back of 3-1 defeat in Wexford. The Wicklow men also suffered defeat last time out, losing 1-0 at home to Athlone, and are sitting in the final play-off spot at present.

From a squad perspective, John Kavanagh faces the final game of his suspension while Ian Turner is also suspended having picked up five yellow cards this season.

Cobh Ramblers manager Darren Murphy spoke earlier in the week about the fixture,

“There’s a lot of good sides in this division. Games are hard to predict. Bray are no different to that. We’re at home and we have to make that count. Teams need to know that they are in for a hard game coming down to Cobh. St Colman’s has always been a fortress and we’ve got to bring that back. We have to come together as a team and get that result. That’s what we’re aiming towards.

“With no game last week we took a step back to reflect on previous games and took that time as a team to see where we can improve. These last few games we want to go out and show what we’ve got.

Kick-off on Saturday night is at 19:00, with the game being streamed live on #LOITV here.
