John McDonnell brings his St Pat's team to face Derry for the third time this season hoping for a good result and to keep in touch with league leaders Bohemians.

Team News
Joe O'Cearuill (ankle), David Partridge (wrist) and Michael Keane (thigh) are all out.

Stephen Paisley and Jamie Harris return from injury and Damien Lynch returns from suspension.

Manager's Comment
“It's our third time playing Derry this season and while they were a bit fortuitous to beat us at Richmond in the league we could have no complaints about the Setanta Cup defeat to them up at the Brandywell.

I am delighted for Paddy McCourt himself on his move to Celtic and I suppose glad for ourselves in that we won't now have to face him.

However Derry have a very strong squad and are well equipped to replace him so as ever we'll be expecting a very tough game up there.

At this stage of the season they're all tough games.

Next week we face Finn Harps and then another long away trip to Cobh.

There's also the distractions of Europe and the transfer window, but we'll just have to keep focused, get the results and keep on the heels of Bohemians” – John McDonnell.
