Derry hoping for full points against Galway

Derry City boss Peter Hutton is hoping that his side can take full points against Galway at the Brandywell this evening (kick-off 7.45).

City lie in mid-table and are some eight points adrift of fifth-placed Bohemians so this is the sort of game that they need to win.

Galway have endured mixed fortunes since being promoted, with a great away win in Bray, but a heavy defeat last time out against St. Patrick's Athletic.

The visitors have yet to draw in 11 games this season and would probably settle for a point in advance.

City will have other ideas.

Highland Radio will have updates from 8.00 pm.
