Live Updates for Derry City -v- Sligo Rovers

94'

Full time in the Ryan McBride Brandywell, and it has finished Derry City 0-0 Sligo Rovers. A dull enough second half, with chances for both teams really at a premium. Derry City pressed on for a winner deep in stoppage time, but Eoin Toal was unable to make the most of two excellent chances.

Sligo didn't create much throughout, and seemed happy to settle for a draw as the second half wore on. Although they didn't have much going forward this evening, they defended resolutely and Derry were unable to break them down.

Derry City 0-0 Sligo Rovers the final score at the Ryan McBride Brandywell, we'll be back with next weekend's fixtures!
