Team news for Bray game

Sligo Rovers play their first away game of the season on Monday against Bray Wanderers in the Carlisle Grounds.

The Bit o' Red were beaten by a last-minute goal against Waterford on Friday night.

Patrick McClean is absent with a hamstring injury. Regan Donelon is also doubtful with a hamstring problem.

Gary Boylan is also an uncertain participant due to an illness which kept him out of the match with Waterford.

Rhys McCabe returns from suspension.

Lyttle says: "We've been done by one goal in the Limerick and Waterford matches. I think the first half on Friday was the poorest we've been in the time I've been here. We were much, much better in the second half and had we taken our chances we'd have won the game because at 1-1 we had them there for the taking from the pressure being put on. We were hit by the sucker goal at the end. But you can't just look at that.

"We haven't started well in all four games and we've dramatically improved in the second half in all four. You just can't afford to do it and we have to rectify it. We got confidence from how we played in the second half against Waterford and I want that for 90 minutes, which I know we can produce, and it will win us games.

"Bray were very compact against Limerick and tried to play on the break. I expect them to come out a little more being at home. It's fair to say both teams really want the points on the back of the results so far.

"I think we are looking forward to an away game if I'm honest. We need the change of scenery after the way the games have transpired.

"Rhys is a welcome addition back to the squad. There's a bug that affected training a bit on Sunday but it was a bubbly session too because the manner of the defeat on Friday was hurtful and you can see the lads want to put it right and put in a consistent performance. We're going there with that intention."
