McIver satisfied with Derry display

Derry manager Brian McIver says his side "thoroughly deserved" to beat Longford in Saturday's Division Two clash at Celtic Park.

McIver expresses particular satisfaction with his side's defence and patience and looks forward to the Oak Leafers' next fixture against Louth.

"It was difficult to watch and we found it difficult to open up Longford at times," admitted the former Donegal boss.
