The North West derby between Finn Harps and Derry City is the highlight of tonights SSE Airtricty League Premier Division action.

After a recent run of disappointing results both Harps and Derry will be seeking improvements tonight.

The Ballybofey blues have lost their last three games while Derry have managed just two points from their last two ties against Sligo Rovers and St Pats.

Harps boss Ollie Horgan will again be without Damian McNulty and Gareth Harkin due to knee problems while Ruairi Keating is suspended after accumulating five bookings.

Derry also have injury concerns over central defenders Ryan McBride and Aaron Barry while striker Rory Patterson who has scored in each of the two league games against Harps this season is also a doubt.

Harps have a decent record against their neighbours this season with four points from their two previous meetings.
