New Derry City injury list and updates ahead of Europa Conference League clash with Riga FC

A comprehensive round-up of Derry City's injury situation as the Candy Stripes gear up for the UEFA Europa Conference League first round

Derry City's 2022 campaign started with a bang, a club record breaking unbeaten start to the league which saw them cruise into a six point lead at the top.

A seven match winless run, however, brought City fans crashing back to earth as the Brandywell club fell behind both Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk with their title hopes diminishing.

A key factor in Derry's slump in form was the myriad of injuries sustained by integral first team players.

Over the first half of the season, Derry lost Michael Duffy, Ciaron Harkin, Patrick McEleney, Ronan Boyce, Eoin Toal, Mattie Smith, Cameron Dummigan at various stages. Duffy and Harkin have been long term absentees but Higgins has been hamstrung by the loss of key players at crucial times in the campaign.

Nevertheless, through adversity Derry have managed to keep in touch with the leading pack going into the second half of the season.

Here is a comprehensive breakdown of Derry's current injury plight and those who have made full recoveries as the second half of the season gets up and running.
