DERRY CITY were booed off the pitch by some of their supporters at the Brandywell, where a 'Collins Out' banner was unveiled at the final whistle.

"I understand people's frustrations and it would be ideal if we could batter everyone four or five-nil but that's not going to happen," said manager Roddy Collins. "You can only work with what you have, and I'm happy with the players' attitude. If people want to slag or whatever, I have heard it all before."

Derry didn't come to life until late in the second half when substitute Patrick McEleney entered the action.

The talented midfielder started to pull the strings and created the best chance of the match on 80 minutes with a pin-point cross, but Ryan Curran's close-range header was easily gathered by Limerick goalkeeper Barry Ryan.

The visitors nearly stole the points in the closing stages when Shane Tracy's free-kick from 25 yards flew just over the crossbar.

Derry City – Doherty; Collins, Byrne, Elebert, Barry (Jarvis 67); Duffy, Foy, Molloy, McGovern (R Curran 56); Stewart (McEleney 70), E Curran.

Limerick – Ryan; Kelly, Folan, Oji, Williams; Duggan, Agyemang (McManus 59), Hughes; Mann (Rainsford 69), Gaffney, Tracy.
