UCD will hope to put last week’s 3-2 defeat by St Patrick’s Athletic behind them when they face a Derry City side still smarting over last week’s defeat by Shamrock Rovers.

UCD will hope to put last week’s 3-2 defeat by St Patrick’s Athletic behind them when they face a Derry City side still smarting over last week’s defeat by Shamrock Rovers.

Gary Dicker is definitely ruled out though Alan Mahon and Anthony Murphy are both hopeful of being passed fit.
