Seagulls have Wings clipped by Drogs

Drogheda United claimed back-to-back Premier Division wins for the first time this season as Bray Wanderers' poor home form continued.

After beating Galway before the summer break, the Boynesiders followed up with a deserved win at the Carlisle Grounds.

Having had the better of the exchanges, the visitors went ahead on the stroke of half-time.

The result leaves Wanderers facing five straight home losses since defeating champions Shamrock Rovers back in May.

Alan McNally came forward from defence in the 44th minute along the right channel and dinked a ball towards the box. Tiernan Mulvenna's header eluded Matt Gregg and Dinny Corcoran was on hand to smash home a 12-yard volley into the net.

Yet Wanderers almost equalised seconds later as Adam Mitchell guided a close range just over when meeting Gary Dempsey's flight free-kick.

The Louth side should taken a 26th-minute lead but striker Corcoran lobbed over the bar with Gregg off his line, after reading Dane Massey's header from the edge of the box.

Yet, despite being out of sorts, the Seagulls almost broke the deadlock just after the half-hour mark.

Adam Mitchell returned Stephen Trimble's goalkick with a towering
header and Conor Murphy got between Trimble and Alan McNally just outside the penalty area, but his effort trickled just wide of the open goal.

Mick Cooke's men then grabbed the crucial second score with eight minutes remaining.

Lee Lynch's free cannoned off Gary Dempsey and then rebounded off another Bray player. It ran to Philip Hand and the left back struck a fierce first-time rocket that flew past Gregg from 15-yards.

Bray pulled one back in the last minute of normal time as substitute Dan McGuinness registered his first senior goal when bundling in Dean Zambra's cross.
