Derry City v Waterford, SSE Airtricity League, Brandywell, Fri 13th April, KO 7.45pm.
Derry City begin a busy few days at the Brandywell tomorrow night as they entertain high-flying Waterford before the visit of Bohemians on Monday (both 7.45pm KO).
The Candy Stripes have made a dream return to their new-look home with 12 goals and a maximum nine points from their three games there so far.
Boss Kenny Shiels is enjoying the run for what it is, however he is expecting a couple of very tough tests ahead.
“Our only concern at the minute is Waterford tomorrow night and you only have to look at the start they’ve made to see what we’re up against. We lost down there at the start of the season but as I said before going to Sligo last weekend, we’re in much better shape now than we were then.”
“The sides above us keep on winning so we’re maybe coming in under the radar a bit. I don’t mind that at all but if we keep doing what we’re doing that will change.”
“I’m expecting a really difficult game against a quality team.”
Shiels will again be forced into changes when he faces Alan Reynolds’ side- Nicky Low and Ronan Curtis are very doubtful after picking up knocks while Darren Cole remains sidelined with a groin injury.
Gavin Peers looks certain to retain his place in the starting XI after an excellent performance at the heart of the defence in Sligo.
