Derry aim to end run of Sligo wins

Derry City hope to end their recent run of poor form against Premier Division champions champions Sligo Rovers when the teams meet in their opening league fixture at the Brandywell on Friday night.

The Candsytripes are without Kevin Deery because of suspension but Barry Molloy returns after missing the 1-1 Setanta Cup draw against Drogheda United.

New signings Paddy Kavanagh and Sean Houston are still out injured, while full-back Dermot McCaffrey is also ruled out.
