Bray Wanderers will host SSE Airtricity League Premier Division leaders Shamrock Rovers in the second round of the EA SPORTS Cup.

The draw took place at FAI HQ on Tuesday afternoon, with reigning champions Derry City set to take on Longford Town.

Gary Cronin’s Seagulls progressed through the first round by virtue of a 3-2 win over Wexford FC on the 4th of March. Wanderers currently hold a 100% record in all competitions this season, having won all three games in the First Division to leave them top.

Shamrock Rovers, on the other hand, sit top of the Premier Division, having picked up 13 points from six games. The contest will see Aaron Greene return to the Carlisle Grounds, nine months on from the striker leaving the then-struggling Seagulls for Rovers in July.

The second round of the EA SPORTS Cup takes place on the weekend of the 1st/2nd of April, with times and dates to be confirmed at a later time.

Meanwhile, Bray Wanderers’ clash against Cabinteely in the Leinster Senior Cup has been fixed for Monday, the 18th of March. Wanderers have already picked up a win over their opponents, having beaten them 3-0 away from home in the league on the opening day.
