Cork City's potential title-winning clash with Derry City on Monday has been postponed due to Hurricane Ophelia.

John Caulfield's side need just one point to be crowned League of Ireland Premier Division champions but the looming hurricane has led to the game being refixed for Tuesday night.

Derry are already on their way to Cork and their manager Kenny Shiels had raised the prospect of playing on the Tuesday earlier this week.

Cork were just three minutes away from the title on Friday night before Dundalk bagged a late winner against Bray Wanderers.

John Caulfield's men are six points clear of Dundalk with a game in hand - the defending champions only have two matches left to play.
