The Shannonsiders’ hopes of securing a playoff place are now very slim, as they are seven points adrift of fifth placed Wexford.
Treaty United scored a last minute equaliser away to Bray on Friday evening in the SSE Airtricity First Division, although at this stage of the season, it is wins that the Shannonsiders need.
A draw leaves them seven points off fifth placed Wexford, who have a game in hand, and Tommy Barrett’s side now hold little chance of reaching the playoffs.
Failing to reach the playoffs would bring disappointment for both Barrett and his squad, as well as the Treaty faithful, and Friday’s hosts are in a similar situation.
Just one point ahead of Treaty, Bray have only won of their last nine games, and they too seem unlikely to reach the promotion deciders.
Following torrential rain throughout the day, it was decided the game would go ahead at the Carlisle Grounds, and Treaty took just 12 minutes to get off the mark, man-in-form Success Edogun crashing in from way out.
Bray had looked threatening throughout the game, but it wasn’t until the final twenty minutes that they would finally beat Corey Chambers, with Jake Walker netting twice in three minutes.
With the game in the dying embers, Mark Walsh nodded home from a brilliant delivery to score his first goal for Treaty, and snatch a point.
The result doesn’t do much good for either side, and they both look hard tasked to find a playoff position come the end of the season.
Barrett’s men return to the Markets Field this Friday, as they host Athlone Town.
