On an emotionally charged night for Derry City at Maginn Park in Buncrana, it was the visiting side, Bray Wanderers, who took the points with a winner in added time, on Friday night.
Derry welcomed back Rory Patterson to the starting lineup and although he was substituted after just half an hour, he had a few chances to score in that time.
Rory went to hospital with a leg injury and Derry had to replace Gerard Doherty at the break as he suffered a thigh injury. Eric Grimes took over in goal.
Despite the early dominance, Derry went behind on 28 minutes when Gary McCabe thumped home a fine free kick from outside the box.
Aaron Greene made it two for Harry Kenny's team with a piledriver of a shot a minute before the interval.
Aaron McEneff converted a penalty in the 64th minute. Five minutes from time, Dean Jarvis levelled the score as Derry seemed likely to be the team to push for the winner.
Bray got a dubious free kick that led to a corner. From the cross, Tim Clancy headed into the net from virtually under the crossbar.
