derry city

Derry City will be without suspended trio Ryan McBride, Philip Lowry and Cillian Morrison for tomorrow night’s Premier Division encounter against Drogheda United (KO 5pm).

On the plus side Peter Hutton welcomes back Conor McCormack, but Stephen Dooley and Mark Timlin will have late fitness tests on their hamstring and calf injuries respectively.

In their last meeting against the Drogs, the Candystripes had a convincing 3-0 in the FAI Cup only a few weeks ago at the Brandywell thanks to goals from Patrick McEleney, Morrison and Barry McNamee.

Since that game United have replaced manager Johnny McDonnell with former Republic of Ireland international Mark Kinsella.

Oisin Kelly will have LIVE updates on Highland from the Brandywell on Saturday evening in association with Kitcheneque, Pennyburn Industrial Est, Derry.
