Dundalk will look to avenge their 3-1 defeat to the Candystripes in Maginn Park earlier in the season when they host them in Oriel Park tomorrow evening.
After two straight League victories, over Sligo and Limerick, Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny told dundalkfc.com that he was pleased with the response of his players over the past few weeks.
Kenny said, “The players have responded well to the two consecutive defeats with seven goals in the last two games without reply. We face a very stern test with Derry City who have done really well recently and had a good win themselves.”
“Our players are really starting to play with confidence and the new players are settling in well so we are playing well ourselves. We want to take that into tomorrow’s game and get the victory.”
Dundalk will be without the injured Brian Gartland (hamstring), Shane Grimes (muscle) and John Mountney (groin) however Kenny can welcome back Steven Kinsella who has recovered from his hamstring strain and will be in the squad.
