Waterford United 0

Referee : Tom Connolly
Waterford United and Bray Wanderers still have the two worst records in the Premier Division of the League of Ireland after playing out a 0-0 draw at the RSC in tonight's battle of two of the bottom three sides. Both sides would indeed trail Longford in the table if it were not for the midlanders' points deduction.
Bray will probably be the happier side with a point keeping them four points ahead of the Blues but neither side really did enough to earn a win tonight.
Dave Mulcahy missed a great early chance for the home side as he failed to hit the target from close range. Vinny Sullivan couldn't believe his bad luck as Bray keeper Steve Williams saved his shot in a crowded box.
Pat Kavanagh looked dangerous for Bray but didn't have an end product. Alan Cawley went closest for Bray as he lashed a free kick just past Dean Delaney's goal.
Both sides would have been hoping for a win from the game but instead illustrated why both are embroiled in a relegation battle with a club who had six points deducted. Waterford remain just one point ahead of bottom side Longford after tonight's games.
Waterford United : Delaney, Flynn, Hedderman, Brosnan, Breen, Scully, Mulcahy, McCarthy, Sullivan (Kiely 62), Warren (Harte 75), Bermingham (Kearney 89).
Bray Wanderers : Williams, Cronin, Delaney, Fox, Cawley, Georgescu (Broderick 71), Caffrey, Kavanagh, Ivory, Hurley (Gough 85), McCabe (O'Shea 66).
