Watch all the goals as Derry City put Finn Harps to the sword at Brandywell

Derry City ramped up the pressure on league leaders Shamrock Rovers with an impressive victory over derby rivals Finn Harps which moved the Brandywell club to within two points of the top.

With four league games remaining, Ruaidhri Higgins troops are still battling on two fronts and Rovers will no doubt be looking nervously over the shoulders ahead of their league fixture with Shelbourne in Tallaght on Sunday.

Derry were just too good for relegation threatened Harps on Friday night with Michael Duffy netting his third goal of the season 19 minutes into the first half and the home side never looked back.
