Drogheda United returned to winning ways with striker Gary O'Neill rolling back the years, to help them see off a disappointing Derry City.

The veteran striker, who only last year was diagnosed with testicular cancer, tormented the Candystripes defence.

The defeat for Derry, which was their third in as many games, came about as they were second best for long periods and more worryingly they haven't scored in 270 minutes.

The home side took the lead on 53 minutes after Carl Walshe easily got away from Shaun Kelly before his left wing centre into the box found Cathal Brady and the midfielder fired home from 16 yards.

Just after the hour mark Derry had strong claims for a penalty but substitute Stephen Dooley was cautioned for diving inside the box.

At the death Derry had a chance fall to goalkeeper Doherty, who raced up field and was inches away from connecting to substitute McNamee's free-kick but that was as close as they got.

Drogheda United: Schlingermann, Daly, Grimes, McNally, C Brady (Andrews 90), McGuigan, Walshe, Doyle, G Brady (Crowley 83), McGlynn, O'Neill (O'Brien 87).

Derry City: Doherty, Kelly, Byrne (McNamee 74), S McEleney, Jarvis; Tracey, Lowry, Molloy, Timlin (Dooley 61); Patterson, Boyle (P McEleney H-T).

Referee: Sean Grant (Wexford).
