Depleted Bray eye Glen' shock

BRAY Wanderers travel north with a weakened squad tonight in a bid to extend their debut season in the Setanta Sports Cup beyond the first-round stage.

Pat Devlin's side have it all to do as they head for Belfast to take on Glentoran at the Oval, with a 4-2 deficit from the first leg in Bray last weekend and Devlin's options limited.

Daire Doyle, Anthony Bolger and Shane O'Connor are all injured, though recent signing Jason Byrne could be fit to play.

"We know it will be difficult but it will be a good run out for us, as getting games has been difficult," said Devlin.

Devine urges Derry to progress

DERRY CITY boss Declan Devine has told his players not to let their standards drop in tonight's Setanta Sports Cup clash with Lisburn Distillery, even though City are almost assured of a place in the next round. Having won the away leg 4-0, only a massive collapse would see Derry exit the competition but Devine is still demanding solid performances from his charges.

"Our priority is to progress in the competition and while we are well placed to do just that, the players still must put in a performance," said Devine.
