Treaty United and Bray Play out Stalemate

Treaty United and Bray Wanderers played out a 0-0 draw at the Carlisle Grounds in the Airtricity League First Division on Friday night. It was quite a dull affair at the Wicklow venue which livened up slightly in the second half in terms of chance creation.

Tommy Barrett made once change to the Treaty side with Dean George replacing the injured Kieran Hanlon in the starting line-up. The team also welcomed captain Jack Lynch into the match day squad on the substitutes bench for the first time this season.

In the opening stages, the in-form George pounced on a loose pass from Dean Zambra but his resulting shot sailed harmlessly over the bar. The first half was a very scrappy affair with both sides surrendering possession far too easily all over the pitch. In an attempt to liven their respective teams, both managers made half-time changes with Barrett introducing both Joel Coustrain and Lee Devitt replacing Matt Keane and Joe Collins. Daragh Lynch replaced Kieran Waters for Bray.

At the beginning of the second half, George drove to the byline before crossing for striker partner Curran who headed over. Bray created their only clear cut chance of the game when a patient build up ended in a through ball for Rob Manley who forced a great save from Jack Brady. Brady also gathered the resulting floated cross.

With ten minutes remaining, Marc Ludden’s long throw-in wasn’t sufficiently cleared by Bray but substitute William Armshaw snatched at the chance and it travelled over the crossbar. Bray striker Daragh Lynch beat the Treaty offside trap for the first time on the night but as Mark Walsh put pressure on Lynch, he drove an effort into the side netting.

As we entered the final five minutes, Treaty had several crosses and corners cleared by the home defence but Joe Gorman headed just over the crossbar from a Marc Ludden corner in the dying stages which proved to the last action of the game. It was a decent point for Treaty United who are now unbeaten in three games and remain in fourth place.

Treaty will now have a busy period over the Easter weekend with an away trip to Athlone Town next Friday and a home clash against Wexford FC at the Markets Field on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Bray Wanderers: Stephen McGuinness, Daniel Blackbyrne, Kevin Knight, Jack Hudson, Daragh Levingston (Karl Manahan 79), Callum Thompson, Keith Dalton (Conor Knight 79), Dean Zambra, Paul Fox, Kieran Waters (Daragh Lynch H/T), Rob Manley
