Eircom League of Ireland leaders Derry City entertain St Patrick's Athletic in tonight's Setanta Sports Cup clash, kick-off 8.05pm.

City won Friday's league encounter 1-0 to go top of the table and tonight's Brandywell game should be another close call.

The Candystripes will, once again, have to plan without Sammy Morrow, Darren Quigley, Kevin Deery and Mark McChrystal as they are all out through injury.

Boss Stephen Kenny is likely to rest a few players so Ciaran Martyn and Connor Sammon should both start.

Both sides are looking for their first victory of this year's Cup campaign.

Pat's will be looking to bounce straight back and the trip north will be a chance for Johnny McDonnell to rotate his squad.

Barry Ryan is set to resume between the sticks as Brendan Clarke has been keeping him out of the team since his suspension.

Joseph Ndo is still out injured for the Inchicore side.
