Shels fury after crunch Derry clash is called off

Shelbourne were left fuming after their clash with Derry City was postponed at short notice when two Candystripes players received international call-ups.

Barry McNamee was promoted to the Ireland U-21 squad to play Germany at the Showgrounds in Sligo on Monday, while Michael Duffy will travel with the Northern Ireland U-21 squad to Belgium, despite the fact that he has been injured in recent weeks.

Shels were looking to take something from the Brandywell in their scrap to avoid relegation.
