Hutton the only injury worry for Derry

Derry City will be looking to push further ahead at the top of the table when they entertain Sligo Rovers at the Brandywell today, kick-off 7.35pm.

Peter Hutton is City’s only injury worry, although Stephen Gray also misses out through suspension.

Derry’s assistant manager Alan Reynolds said: "Sligo had a good result against Bray midweek and will be confident.

“But we have prepared well and are in good goalscoring form, so hopefully we can continue in that vein and secure another three points and give our loyal home support a good start to the Easter weekend."

For Sligo, Stephen Parkhouse, Brian Cash and Mauro Almeida are out injured as Paul Cook’s side look to build on their midweek victory over Bray.

Chris Butler still remains out as he recuperates from a car accident.

The game is live on RTÉ Two with coverage starting at 7.30pm.
