Derry City were last night dumped out of the EA Sports Cup after a 4-0 loss to Sligo Rovers.

Two goals from Raffaele Cretaro and Danny North did for Derry - the current holders of the cup.

Derry’s Ryan McBride was sent off in the 77th minute for bringing down Cretaro in the box.

North saw his penalty saved but pounced to score the rebound.

Cretaro opened the scoring on 50mins, before North’s first. Cretaro’s second came on 83mins before North completed his double two minutes later.
