Waterford v Derry City – Fri 30th Aug – KO 7.45pm – RSC, Waterford
SSE Airtricity League
The Candystripes were on the road early today ahead of Friday night’s game against Waterford at the RSC (KO 7.45).
The Foylesiders have had the better of the exchanges between the sides so far this season- three wins at Brandywell including that thrilling EA Sports Cup semi-final and a 2-2 draw on their last trip south.
Declan Devine is well aware that will count for little this weekend of course; the Derry boss focusing solely on what is required between now and the end of October.
“We have seven league games left now and if we win those we will have qualified for Europe. That has to be the aim for us now.”
“It won’t be easy- we will need to be at our best in each and every game to give us a chance of making that happen. I do think this group of players deserve that reward for the work they have put in.”
Devine will be without the influential Greg Sloggett for Friday’s game after he was stretchered off in the cup defeat at home to Dundalk.
Ciaron Harkin also misses out through suspension leaving the visitors to shuffle the deck a little against Alan Reynolds’ outfit.
