Limerick FC will look to bounce back from Bray defeat with home comforts

The Carlisle Grounds where Limerick FC lost on Friday night

Limerick's 1-0 defeat to Bray Wanderers last night in the SSE Airtricity League First Division has dealt their chances of reaching the playoffs a blow, but with two home games to come, all is not lost. 

A Paul Keegan strike was the difference between the two sides at the seaside last evening. Limerick will not be happy with their overall performance considering former Limerick FC defender Killian Cantwell was sent off after 50 minutes. 

The much needed three points did not come Tommy Barrett's way this weekend, but with two home games to come on the bounce, Drogheda July 19 and Cobh Ramblers on July 26, the SuperBlues will be looking to close the gap on the side above them, which now include Cabinteely, Drogheda, Longford and clear league leaders (five points) Shelbourne.

Limerick FC v Drogheda 19/7 (H) 7.45pm
