Live Updates for Derry City -v- Finn Harps

97'

Finn Harps create history tonight, their win over Derry City is their first ever league victory at the Brandywell.

The final score is 2-1 in Harps's favour, they well deserved the three points  and it leaves them on 14 points and 4th place in the league after the completion of the first round of 9 games in the 36 game  competition.

It is Ruairi Higgins's first taste of defeat since he took over from Declan Devine and the loss leaves Derry City on 8 points and 8th position in the table.

 

I'm Patrick O Connor and I hope you enjoyed the updates from this, the last of the first round series of matches in the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.
