Devlin urges Bray to get back on track

BRAY Wanderers boss Pat Devlin has called on his players to put last Friday's controversial defeat by league leaders St Patrick's Athletic behind them when they face Dundalk tonight.

Bray went down 1-0 away to the Saints on Friday thanks to a disputed penalty, their second defeat in a row, a reversal which still pains Wanderers.

"We are looking forward to getting back out on the pitch and are looking to getting back on track," said Devlin.



Blues make O'Brien boss

WATERFORD United have confirmed the appointment of Paul O'Brien as their manager on a permanent basis.

The Blues dismissed boss Stephen Henderson last month after a run of five defeats in eight games and coach O'Brien came in on a caretaker basis.

He has been a success at the RSC so far, leading United to three wins from four games, including last Friday's superb 3-2 victory away to title contenders Cork City.

Coaches Billy Hearne and Alan Barry will make up O'Brien's backroom team.

"We're delighted to be able to put the appointments of the three lads on a more permanent footing. Personally I'm thrilled to have three local lads in charge of the squad, and everyone at the club is delighted with the progress made since they've stepped in," said Blues chairman John O'Sullivan.
