Weak second half let down Derry City, says Hutton

Derry City lost 1-0 at home to Dundalk on Friday night in their first home game of the season.

A lapse in concentration in the home defence let Dane Massey in to steer the ball beyond keeper Gerard Doherty on 65 minutes.

The sides were even in the first half and Derry began the second half well.

Mark Timlin went close to opening the scoring on the hour after he was sent free down the right. He took too much time on the ball inside the box and Massey had time to dispossess the Derry player.

After the game, Martin Holmes spoke to manager Peter Hutton.

Martin Holmes also gave a report on the game for Highland Radio Sport.
