Derry City have confirmed they will use Maginn Park in Buncrana when renovations are taking place at the Brandywell.

With work on the pitch due to start in July, the club have opted for the Buncrana venue to host their remaining home games in the latter part of the season.

Institute's ground at Drumahoe had also been in the running.

Derry and the Inishowen League have agreed on costs for upgrading at Maginn which will bring the ground up to League of Ireland standards.

The Candystrips, who currently sit joint top of the Premier Division, could play six games in the Inishowen town.
