Derry City make the trip to Galway on Friday night looking to build on last week’s positive win over Longford Town.
That victory was their first in the league since April.
Peter Hutton will be without Donegal man Cillian Morrison as the striker is suffering from a virus.
A decision on the fitness of Aaron Barry and Dean Jarvis will be made late on Friday with both carrying knocks.
Galway will also be in confident mood after their EA Sports Cup semi final win over Dundalk last Monday night.
