DERRY City’s slim European hopes continue after this score-less draw with fellow hopefuls Shamrock Rovers.
Both sides had clear cut chances with Conor Powell missed a glorious one in the first half when he broke the City offside trap.
While right at the death Michael Rafter was denied by a tremendous save Rovers keeper Richard Brush, after the ball fell kindly to the striker inside the six yard box.
Derry City: Doherty, Madden, S McEleney, Molloy, Jarvis; P McEleney, Higgins (Griffin 51), McNamee; McDaid, Rafter, Curran.
Referee: Mr Sean Grant (Wexford).
