Typical of two sides who have virtually assured their safety from relegation, UCD and Bray Wanderers played out a 1-1 draw at Belfield Park on Friday night.

Irish underage international Emeka Onwubiko struck the lead goal shortly after half-time when Stephen Fox played in the youngster who slotted past Darren Quigley for his first Bray goal.

Clive Delaney might have put the game beyond his former side but Quigley saved easily - easier than when he had to dive smartly to push away Fox's driven volley.

Conor Sammon had wasted a good chance for UCD but atoned for it almost immediately when he levelled the game up on 69 minutes with his sixth league goal of the season.

Peter Hynes turned provider as Sammon nipped in to make it 1-1.

There were no more goals although with both Waterford and Galway picking up wins near the bottom, the relegation battle may not yet be over.

UCD : Quigley, Mahon, Kenna, McDonnell, Bermingham, C Byrne, McFaul, Finn, McWalter (Gallagher 67), P Byrne (Hynes 67), Sammon.
Bray Wanderers : Williams, Ivory, Delaney, Kenny, Cronin, O'Shea (McCabe 72), Caffrey, Cawley (Duggan 16) Kavanagh, Fox, Onwubiko (Georgescu 84).
