Linfield v Derry City, Windsor Park, 7,30pm
After an absence of nearly thirty years City have become regular visitors to Windsor Park for the Setanta Sports Cup. The Candystripes once again hit the A1 for a clash with the Irish League leaders tomorrow night.
Both sides had wins at the weekend, the Candystripes getting their League campaign underway with a home victory over Bohemians, whereas Linfield progressed to the Irish Cup semi finals with a comfortable victory over Coagh United.
Declan Devine will be forced to plan without Deery, McGroary and Patterson as he attempts to plot for a City victory at the venue. Deery and McGroary are both ruled out with injury, whereas Patterson is ruled out under the terms of his transfer release from the Belfast side.
Devine is likely to start with the same time that started on Friday night, with Mark Farren the favourite to replace Patterson in the starting eleven. Devine has also used the Setanta Sports Cup blood a number of younger players, with Michael Barr seeing action during the Distillery tie.
David Jeffrey fielded a strong side against Coagh United but with a 2-0 lead at the break he was able to ring the changes and withdraw key players such as Michael Gault early in the second half. The Blues have a squad to envy and boasting a healhty lead over Cliftonville and Portadown in the League table, the Blues can focus on their first Setanta Cup tie of 2012.
Tickets are available from the Brandywell are priced at £10 and £6 for concessionary. City fans will be housed in the North Stand and enter via the Boucher Road entry.
