Derry City could secure their safety in the top flight of Irish football on Saturday evening at the Markets Field in Limerick.

Three points against the leagues bottom side, coupled with a Sligo Rovers defeat to Bohemians tomorrow and a St Pats win tonight against Drogheda United, and Derry would clinch Premier Division survival.

The Candydstrips will be in confident mood heading south off the back of last weeks win over Galway but Limerick have also been in good form recently taking 20 points from the last 27 available.

Centre-back duo Ryan McBride and Aaron Barry are back for Paul Hegarty's side after the pair missed the Galway game through suspension.

Tonight, the battle to avoid the drop continues with Galway United away to Champions Dundalk and Cup finalists Cork City hosting Longford

All of those games kick off at 7.45.
