Ruaidhri Higgins' troops were on the hunt for back to back league wins to maintain their position on the league summit but the scheduled trip to bottom of the table UCD has been postponed.

The fixture will be rescheduled in the coming days but Derry fans won't have too long to wait to see the Candy Stripes in action as the Brandywell club hosts Drogheda United on Monday night at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium before welcoming St Pat's Athletic to Foyleside the following Friday night.

A number of pitch inspections have taken place across League of Ireland grounds today and conditions will continue to be monitored ahead of this evening’s fixtures.
