Preview: Derry City vs Finn Harps

Finn Harps take on neighbours Derry City FC tomorrow night in SSE Airtricity League Premier Division action. Kickoff at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium is 7.45pm and the game is live on

Ollie Horgan told “We’ve managed to get ourselves off the bottom, barely, and we’ll need more if we want to stay above UCD. We’ve done well at Derry in recent seasons but if you look at the two teams they are absolutely flying and pushing Shamrock Rovers to the pin of their collar for the league title while we’re at the other end of the table.

We’re down bodies big time through injury and suspension with lads doing all they can to get back on the pitch with games running out. The saying is that form goes out the window in derby games and so we’ll hope that’s the case tomorrow night and we come away with a result.”

In team news David Webster misses out through injury, while Conor Tourish, Eric McWoods and Elie-Gael N’Zeyi Kibonge are doubts. Ethan Boyle will serve the first of a two game suspension for accumulating 12 yellow cards.

Injured: David Webster

Suspended: Ethan Boyle

Doubtful: Conor Tourish, Eric McWoods, Elie-Gael N’Zeyi Kibonge
