Captain Paddy Bradley says the final day League encounter with Westmeath in Mullingar on April 8th will be an opportunity for the Derry team to show its character.

The Glenullin forward put in a fine second half performance to score 0-7 in Sunday’s disappointing draw with Louth which leaves Derry needing at least a draw to secure their Division Two status.
“Louth caught us by surprise a bit in the first half and we were lucky they didn’t score three or four goals but we showed great character in the second half,” said Bradley.
At the end of the day, league football is tight, we have made mistakes and have things to improve on. I suppose had we been going into the last game as a ‘dead rubber’, it would not be much preparation for the Championship so it leaves things a bit spicy. We need to show character in our last game and maybe we will find a bit out about ourselves,” he added.
