Pat Devlin saw his Bray Wanderers side tumble to defeat on a night where his side moved in and out of the relegation places. However, a vibrant Cork City got their rewards as goals from Ian Turner and Ciaran Kilduff either side of an Ismahil Akinade strike secured their mid-table status.

Stuart Ashton’s side took the lead inside six minutes through a spectacular goal. Ian Turner struck a wonderful half-volley which flew past a helpless Darren Quigley into the top left corner.

City could have doubled their lead only minutes later. A series of blocked shots allowed Ian Turner to try for his second but an excellent goal-line clearance by Danny O’Connor prevented the winger from scoring his third goal at the Carlisle Grounds this season.

However, Bray grabbed an equaliser against the run of play. Kieran Marty Waters produced a floated cross to the back-post which Ismahil Akinade rose to meet before finding the net with an emphatic header. Returning from suspension, the Nigerian-born Akinade now has five league goals to his name.

Cork could have restored their lead on the hour mark. An Ian Turner corner found a completely unmarked Dan Murray but the centre-back thrashed his effort over when subtlety was needed.

Bray threatened to take a shock lead with just over 20 minutes left. Substitute John Mulroy slipped in Waters but just as the winger looked set to strike an effort on goal he hesitated under pressure from Murray.

Cork did eventually find a second with 10 minutes remaining. Ciaran Kilduff chased a through ball before Danny O’Connor lost his footing. Kilduff didn’t need a second invitation as he coolly slotted the ball across Quigley to send the Seagulls rock-bottom.

Both sides now face a perhaps welcome distraction from league action. Bray Wanderers face a tie against Wayside Celtic in the Leinster Senior Cup while Cork face an FAI Cup third round tie against Sligo Rovers.
