Former St Patrick's Athletic coach Harry Kenny has to try and arrest a dramatic slide against his old club when he makes his managerial debut tonight.

Bray, bottom of the Premier Division and on a run of three successive games without a point or even a goal, began life after Mick Cooke at home to the Saints this evening, Kenny in temporary charge after the midweek dismissal of Cooke.

Names like Owen Heary and Paul Doolin remain in the frame to take over in what would be the fourth managerial appointment - excluding three caretakers - in 13 months at Bray. Saints boss Liam Buckley, keen to extend their winning run to four games, is wary of the threat posed by the Co Wicklow club.

"We played out in Bray a few weeks ago in the Leinster Senior Cup and they put it up to us that night. We know the areas they are strong in so we have to get it right from our end of things and hopefully if we do that, we can get the three points," said Buckley.

The Saints have doubts over Christy Fagan and Darren Dennehy while Conor O'Malley and skipper Ger O'Brien remain absent.
