St Pat’s were without Chris Forrester as they were undone by 10-man Derry City at Richmond Park, with the 22-year-old due to travel to Peterborough United to discuss personal terms over the weekend after the clubs agreed a deal for his services.

Poor defending allowed Ciaran O’Connor net the decisive strike for Derry in the 20th minute, though Pat’s twice failed to rescue a point in the closing stages as Morgan Langley and Conan Byrne, from a missed penalty, allowed golden opportunities pass them by.

The first half saw Pat’s dominate possession, though rarely making headway into a well-organised Derry rearguard. Conversely, it was lax defending from Liam Buckley’s side that allowed the visitors take the lead with minimal effort.

Stephen Dooley was given time and space to hit a floated cross from the right flank, which was headed home by the equally unmarked O’Connor. Patrick McEleney came close to doubling Derry’s advantage just after the half-hour, when he twice turned Seán Hoare on the edge of the Saints’ box before his effort glanced the upright.

Derry’s Cillian Morrison was dismissed just before the break for a second bookable offence when he cynically pulled down the advancing Ger O’Brien. Pat’s continued to enjoy the lion’s share of possession after the restart, but Langley missed their best chance in the 80th minute before Byrne blasted over his spot-kick five minutes later to compound Pat’s dismal night.

St Patrick’s Athletic – Clarke, O’Brien, Hoare, Desmond, Bermingham; Bolger (Brennan76), Verdon (McGrath 67); Chambers, Byrne, Greene (Bayly 83); Langley.

Derry City – Doherty, Jarvis, Barry, McBride, Cornwall; McNamee; McEleney, McEneff Dooley (Curtis 87),

Morrison; O’Connor (Quigley 80)
