Derry City's assistant manager Kevin Deery has praised his side's mentality after they came from behind to beat Cork City 3-1 at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium on Friday evening.

Joseph Olowu had the visitors ahead at half time before two goals in a minute turned things around for the Candystripes.

On 49 minutes, Kevin O'Connor found the back of his own net before Walter Figueira netted to put Declan Devine's side ahead just a minute later.

James Akintunde then secured the win with a goal on the 90 minute mark.

Next up for Derry is a trip to Lithuanian side FK Riteriai on Tuesday in a Europa League Qualifier.
