Derry look for first win of the year in Galway

Aaron McEneff

Two of the League of Ireland Premier Division's bottom three continue their fight against the drop this evening as third placing chasing Derry City head into the west.

Derry are hitting the road to play Galway United this evening.

Galway are currently second from bottom while a win for Derry would see them go third.

Derry will be missing four key players as they try to beat Galway at Eamonn Deacy Park for the first time this season.

Aaron McEneff is suspened, Dean Jarvis is struggling with a thigh problem, Nathan Boyle has a knee injury and Darren Cole is ill due to food poisoning.

Nicky Low has been struggling with a hamstring injury of late but is expected to start.

Elsewhere, basement side Drogheda begin the night 12-points from safety ahead of their game against Bohemians at United Park and Bray Wanderers will put their off-field issues to one side when they host Limerick.

All those games in the top-flight are at a quarter-to-eight
