Derry City will be visiting UCD Bowl on Friday for their Premier Division fixture with UCD. Let’s check on the predicted line ups and player availability.
UCD will be wanting a better result here after a 2-1 Premier Division loss in their previous game against St. Patrick's Athletic. It’s our opinion that The Students could kick off with a 4-2-3-1 system, handing starts to Kian Moore, Michael Gallagher, Eric Yoro, Sam Todd, Evan Osam, Mark Dignam, Donal Higgins, Dara Keane, Dylan Duffy, Sean Brennan and Evan Caffrey.
UCD manager Andy Myler will be grateful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free group ready to go.
How UCD could look vs Derry City
In their previous game, Derry City drew 1-1 in the Premier Division match with Drogheda United. It’s our belief that The Candystripes might make use of a 3-5-2 system, settling for Brian Maher, Cameron Dummigan, Cameron McJannett, Shane McEleney, Caoimhin Porter, Patrick McEleney, Brandon Kavanagh, Will Patching, Ciarán Coll, Jamie McGonigle and Matthew Smith.
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the Derry City gaffer Ruaidhrí Higgins to be concerned about. Michael Duffy (Tibia Fracture) won’t be in action.
