Derry step closer to victory

UPDATE - end of first half of extra time

Derry City 3 St Pat’s 2

Derry City are taking a 3-2 lead into the second half of extra-time thanks to super sub Rory Patterson, who scored his second.

Goalscorer Stuart Graecen, who’s been substituted, said he hopes his teammates can make a big push to win this FAI Cup final.

“We’ve punished a bad maybe conceding a goal through that. The game is taking a lot out of everyone, mentally, physically - one big push now and hopefully we can do it.

“That goal gives us something to hang on to, think we’ll probably get a couple of other chances and hopefully we can put one away,” he said.
