Derry City have a number of players missing for tomorrow night's home clash with St Patrick's Athletic.
Duo Mark Timlin and Seanan Clucas are suspended, while both Ryan McBride and Stephen Dooley remain on the treatment table; Philip Lowry, who missed last weekend's FAI Cup win at Edenderry Town is struggling with a shin injury.
Despite the injury problems boss Peter Hutton is expecting his side to be up for the challenge.
"St Pat's are a vastly experienced team, brimming with quality throughout and they'll certainly impose a huge challenge for us on Friday night; but it's a challenge that the boys have to look forward too," Hutton stated.
"It's a way of testing themselves again, yes we could possibly be down six key players, but you just have to roll the sleeves up and get on with it."
