Derry City prevailed last night in a heated north-west derby against Finn Harps in Ballybofey.
David Parkhouse scored a late brace of goals for the Candystripes in a 3-2 win.
All the goals came in the second half on an eventful night at Finn Park.
Harps played for just under an hour with ten men after Colm Deasy was sent off for a horror tackle that ended Ciaran Coll’s night.
Harps were fuming in the first half when Nathan Boyle had an effort chalked off, which the hosts argued should have stood, but Parkhouse’s double put Derry into third.

Here ye go. Think because Todd moves towards the keeper gave Doyle reason enough to disallow it. Not sure what the exact law is in this situation. pic.twitter.com/VXp2yziPCl
