Derry City are up to second in the Premier Division table following a 3-1 win away to ten-man St. Pat’s on Tuesday night.

The Candystrips were 3 nil up by the half hour mark with Patrick McClean, Gerardo Bruna and Junior netting to give Derry the perfect start.

Gary Shaw pulled a goal back for the host as Kevin Toner was sent off in an action packed first half.

With Bohemians losing 1-0 to Dundalk, Derry move up a place in the table, eights points behind Shamrocks Rovers and ahead of Bohs on goal difference.

Derry boss Declan Devine was full of praise for his players after the Pats win…
