James McClean will appear on our TV screens as a pundit for the first time this weekend when Derry City play Cobh Ramblers in the final of the EA Sports Cup.

McClean's former side Derry will be strong favourites to win a trophy they last won in 2011 when they face Division One side Cobh.

The match takes place in Derry's home ground, The Brandywell, this Sunday afternoon and McClean will be joined in the eirSport studio by former Derry boss Pat Fenlon.

McClean missed Ireland's recent Nations League 4-1 hammering by Wales and the 1-1 friendly draw in Poland after he underwent an operation for an injured wrist.
