DERRY CITY manager Peter Hutton felt it was a job well done following their win over Cobh Ramblers at St Colman's Park.

Second-half goals from Barry McNamee and Rory Patterson enabled the Candystripes to see off the spirited First Division side.

"It was job completed. We knew it was going to be a difficult game given the conditions of the pitch, but we dominated throughout and ran out fairly comfortable winners," he said.

"They had one chance in the first half when they got in at the back post, but other than that I felt we contained them fairly well."

Neither side created much in the opening 45 minutes until just before the break when Bobbi O'Donoghue got in behind Dean Jarvis, only to head his effort wide from close range.

Derry took the lead on 54 minutes when McNamee shot past Shane Hallahan from 20 yards.

The visitors were denied by the woodwork on two occasions, with Aaron Barry and Patterson both hitting the crossbar before they put the tie to bed on 80 minutes when Michael Duffy's pass found Patterson inside the box and he drilled home his fourth goal in five games.

Cobh Ramblers – Hallahan; Kenny, O'Donnell, Frahill, Burns, Gill (McCarthy 66), Deady (Goldsmith 60), O'Flynn, Stanton (Creamer 87), Waters, O'Donoghue.

Derry City – Doherty; Jarvis, Barry, McBride, McGovern; Duffy, Molloy, Ventre, McNamee; McEleney (Boyle 86), Patterson.

REF – P Sutton (Clare).
