Big night for Derry as Cork visit The Brandywell

Conor McDermott

Derry City welcome the Premier Division leaders Cork City to the Brandywell on Friday night.

Nicky Low is a doubt but Conor McDermott could feature for the Candystrips while Portsmouth target Ronan Curtis is expected to line out.

Three former Derry players - Barry McNamee, Aaron Barry and Conor McCormick are now part of the Cork party which will add a bit of spice to the tie.

Derry are eight points behind Cork in the standings and have been good at home this season.
