Bray Wanderers Match Preview

Galway United Supporters Trust are running a bus to Saturday’s game against Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds. Bus details HERE.

Galway United will be hoping to pick up their first result of the season on the road on Saturday evening when the Tribesmen travel to the Carlisle Grounds to take on Bray Wanderers.

Under the stewardship of caretaker manager Maciej Tarnogrodzki, the Seagulls form has taken an upturn. The Wanderers defeated Sligo Rovers and Limerick before holding Derry City at the Brandywell. On Monday night, they fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Shamrock Rovers and Galway United will also be hoping to bounce back from a 3-0 loss at Oriel Park when they travel east on Saturday.

Tommy Dunne insists United must take positives the Limerick and Dundalk outings and build on them at the Carlisle Grounds.

“We’re hoping we can pick up the right result in Bray on Saturday,” Dunne told

“I think we’re capable of doing it but we’ll need to perform on the day. We’ve been there or thereabouts in games, outside of Rovers and Dundalk away, so we’re moving on and concentrating solely on the challenges Bray Wanderers present us with.

“We know we’ve got to work hard and be tuned in from the start, we need to make the right decisions. We’ve no fears going to Bray on Saturday, but we know they have a strong side with a lot of Premier Division experience so we’ll give them the respect they deserve.

“We know it will be a tough game and that Bray isn’t an easy place to go for any team. We’re looking forward to the game and we’re anxious to get the Dundalk result out of our system.

“There’s a lot of positives within the group but positives are one thing, it’s about getting the right results. We’ve got to make sure we’re positive in our approach and play but we’ve also got to be right on the day.

“We went to Dundalk and had a good go, we played well in the first 45 minutes but we got done with a sucker-punch of a bad decision early in the second half and we weren’t strong enough and resolute enough to stem the tide and have a go back so we’ve got to make sure that we’re competing from the start until the end of the match on Saturday to get a result.”

United will be without the services of long-term injury victims Jason Molloy (broken toe), Kilian Cantwell (knee) and Andy O’Connell (ankle).
