Derry City will be without Rory Patterson, Shaun Kelly and Aaron Barry for their SSE Premier Division clash with Limerick at the Brandywell tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).
Striker Patterson has been ruled out after suffering slight concussion in Tuesday’s last gasp FAI Cup semi-final replay win over Shamrock Rovers.
Defenders Kelly (suspension) and Barry (knee) will also miss tonight’s clash.
With the Cup now the priority for City, manager Peter Hutton is likely to give a number of squad players the chance to stake a place in the final against St Patrick’s Athletic on 2 November.
That could see the likes Ryan McBride, Barry McNamee and Philip Lowry, who are doubtful for tonight’s clash, also sitting out tonight’s game.
