Derry City: Skipper doubtful for St Pat’s test

Derry City captain Ryan McBride is one of three players who are extremely doubtful for tonight’s clash at St Patrick’s Athletic (KO 7.45pm).

The defender picked up a back injury during the warm-up at Sligo Rovers on Saturday night and was unable to play at the Showgrounds.

Fellow defender’s Dean Jarvis and Shaun Kelly are also major injury concerns, while Mark Timlin misses out through suspension.

Boss Peter Hutton spoke to Sentinel Sport’s Editor Kevin McLaughlin after training yesterday.

This evening’s game will be live on both Radio Foyle and Drive 105’s Match Night Live from 7.30pm.
