Derry boss describes tackle on Ciaran Coll as horrendous – player taken to hospital

Declan Devine

Derry City boss Declan Devine has described the tackle on his team captain Ciaran Coll as being horrendous.

The defender was taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg after a rash challenge from Harps Colm Deasy during Friday night's Premier Division derby that City won 3-2. Deasy was sent off.

Devine also expressed disappointment with the response from some Finn Harps fans as Coll - who signed for the Candystripes in the close season after ten years with the Donegal club - was stretchered off the pitch.
