There was no change at the business end of the Derry & District League table after this weekend’s fixtures with the top two sides both claiming wins.

Reigning champions, Park Bar netted five goals to maintain their six points advantage on the league summit.

Striker, Joe McCready scored a brace of goals in that fixture as the leaders picked up where they left off before the Christmas break.

And second placed, Derry City ensured they remain in the hunt for the title with victory over Brandywell Harps.

And in the only other game to be played in the top eight section of the league, in-form Campbell’s secured a narrow victory over Lisahally at Lisnagelvin.

In the bottom seven section, Oxford United Stars continued their superb run of form with an emphatic win over Crescent.

Elsewhere, Culmore defeated Tristar who were highly fancied to challenge for the bottom seven trophy.

And Ballymoor bounced back from last weekend’s defeat to Crescent as they secured victory over Culmore Colts.

Results - Derry City 2, Brandywell Harps 0; Campbell’s 2, Lisahally 1; Park Bar 5, Trojans 1, Oxford United Stars 6, Crescent 1; Ballymoor 3, Culmore Colts 1; Culmore 3, Tristar 1.
