Derry now in much better place: Shiels

Sligo Rovers 1 Derry City 2

By Eoin Wilson

Kenny Shiels believes that Derry City are far better equipped to face high-flying Waterford this week than they were when the teams met in February.

The Candystripes have put a dismal start to the season behind them and are in a rich vein of form, winning five successive games in all competitions, the latest of which was a 2-0 win over Sligo Rovers on Saturday.

Waterford, currently in second place, defeated Derry 2-1 at the RSC on the opening day of the season, but Shiels believes that Alan Reynolds’ side will face a much stronger Candystripes side at the Brandywell this week.

“You have to try and be confident for every fixture, but Waterford are the most aggressive team in the league,” he said. “They were very aggressive against us and you can see that in their play.

“We played them in the first match. We are a better team now than then. I don’t know how many players we were missing but we have players back and we have players coming into the team now with experience and that’s why we signed them.”

Rory Patterson’s deflected free-kick and Ronan Hale’s sixth goal of the season saw Derry pick up their first league win at the Showgrounds in nine years.

“It was a good performance,” Shiels agreed. “We were comfortable. I don’t want to be unfair to Sligo but I felt we were in control for quite a period of the game.”
