DERRY CITY'S miserable home form from last season came back to haunt them as Cork City secured all three points on a terrible surface at the Brandywell, where Darren Dennehy hit a deserved second-half winner.

The home side had the first effort at goal on 10 minutes but Patrick McEleney's 25-yard drive was straight at goalkeeper Mark McNulty.

Cork had a great chance on 27 minutes, but after Derry goalkeeper Gerard Doherty had mis-judged a high ball into his six-yard box, Dan Murray's header was cleared off the line by the alert Barry Molloy.

Derry went straight down the other end themselves, with McEleney releasing Rory Patterson, but his first time shot from 20 yards was kept out by McNulty.

Moments later a clever free-kick routine nearly paid off for John Caulfield's side, but Mark O'Sullivan was inches away from getting his boot to Colin Healy's centre, which flashed into the six-yard box before rolling into Doherty's grateful hands.

Cork broke the deadlock on 54 minutes after more poor defending by the home side: Billy Dennehy's left-footed free-kick from the right was fizzed to the back post and his brother Darren, who was unmarked, made no mistake powerfully heading the ball past Doherty.

Despite bringing on Michael Duffy and Shane McEleney, the home side never troubled McNulty – in fact it was the visitors who looked the more likely to add a second on the break.

Derry City – Doherty, Collins, Byrne, McBride (Jarvis h-t), Barry; Ventre, Molloy, P McEleney (Duffy 59); E Curran, Patterson, Stewart (S McEleney 76).

Cork City – McNulty, D Dennehy, Morrissey, Healy, Murphy, Murray, Lenihan, B Dennehy (O'Leary 87), O'Sullivan, Buckley, Kearney (Kavanagh 58).
