Bray can make sure Cork don't have it all their way

Cork City's Karl Sheppard celebrates scoring a goal
1 of 1

Not many would have expected it to be something of a top-of-the-table six-pointer in the final week of games in the first round of the League of Ireland but Cork City's clash against Bray Wanderers should be a cracker.

Cork are bidding to make it 11 wins from 11 and attack the second third of the campaign with major confidence.

They have won roughly half of those games without putting in particularly impressive performances, which is hugely positive for manager John Caulfield.

Bray, however, look well equipped for success on the road. They have massive pace on the break and their victories at Derry and Dundalk indicate they can give City headaches, especially given the form of Dylan Connolly, Aaron Greene and top league scorer Gary McCabe.

Bray are well organised and capable of getting a result. The 7-1 for an away win is tempting but it may be better to punt them on the Asian handicap.

The money has come for Limerick against Shamrock Rovers and with good cause. The Shannonsiders were excellent against Galway for much of their game last Friday and Rovers give the impression of a team lacking leadership and discipline.

Galway United have been shot-shy this season but they are getting their main forwards back fit and can score against Dundalk, who look near-certainties to do the same in what should be an entertaining game at Eamonn Deacy Park.

Waterford United are as short as 4-9 at home to UCD, yet the First Division clash will hardly be a formality for the hosts.
