First Team News
Stephen Bradley gave us his team news for Friday’s game away v Derry City in Maginn Park, Buncrana, kick off 7:45pm:

On win away v’s Bohemians last week:

“We played well and scored some good goals. We had great support, a good atmosphere in the ground and it was a good night all round. It was good to get the early goal and settle us down and to get the clean sheet as well. I thought we defended really well as a team, considering they had so many long throws and set plays that went into the box which we knew was coming. It was great for us that we won a lot of the headers and cleaned up a lot of the second balls because against them that throw in is like a corner at times.”
The goals:
“I thought it was a great finish by Brandon Miele, a difficult chance to take as it was coming at him with pace and he runs towards it. It’s a hard one to keep the ball down and he did. We watched one or two of the Bohs games and obviously from playing against them we thought it (the right hand side) was an area that we’d get a chance and luckily for us it worked out that way. Trevor Clarke came inside and it was a hell of a finish. He bent it in the top corner before they even knew it, he shifts and hits it so quick.”
On Derry City:
“Derry are a good side, they play good football. We know it’s going to be a tough game but the way we’re playing at the moment I don’t think we’d fear anyone. So we’ll go there full of confidence. There’s a lot of games coming up in quick succession, we play Friday and then Monday (against Galway United) but we just have to look at the next game and concentrate on that. We want to win against Derry and see where that takes us. We’re getting there, it’s not perfect by any stretch. We’ve let games slip at vital times, the pleasing thing about the last two weeks is that we’ve played as a team for 90 minutes so that shows signs that the lads are starting to understand each other’s game and starting to gel better. It’s still going to take time but we’re definitely in the right direction.”
On injuries and suspensions:
“Darren Meenan is back after his suspension. Sean Boyd is out (suspended) so it’s one for one really. Paul Corry is still out (knee injury) but Ryan Connolly is back in full training and goes straight into contention. He’s a naturally fit lad so he won’t be too far off the pace.”
