Bray Wanderers head to Dalymount Park on Friday looking to pile further pressure on Bohemians.

The Wicklow side have won both their opening league games beating St. Patrick's Athletic 2-1 at Richmond Park and then Finn Harps 5-3 at home.

Speaking to the club's official website before the match, Bray Wanderers Head Coach Harry Kenny said, “It has been a good start with maximum points from our opening 2 games. We will be looking to build on that this Friday night and I am certainly looking forward to a good game. We are looking forward to Friday night. Away to Bohemians is never an easy game so it is important we prepare properly this week."

Bohemians have endured a difficult start to the new season after being humbled by Derry 4-1 at home before losing the Dublin derby to arch-rivals Shamrock Rovers 2-1 last time out.

A third defeat in a row would surely heap unwanted pressure on Bohs' boss Keith Long after the north Dublin side's disappointing 2016 season.

Bray are on a scoring spree at the moment while Bohemians will need to shore up their leaky defence if they are to get their first point(s) of the season.
