Football: Saint Half Hot Mum as Candy Suffer a Licking; Eircom Premier Division: Derry City 0 St Pat's 1 PAT'S FANS DREAM OF TITLE WIN


Byline: Michael SCULLY Chief Sports Writer

IT'S very early days but Saints fans are dreaming ISaints fans are dreamingthat the glory days could be revisited this season.

Off the field things couldn't be better following the recent club takeover and the return of Brian Kerr as the new Director of Football.

On the field, it's also ticking along very nicely indeed. Anthony Murphy's strike five minutes from half-time at the Brandywell last night was enough to move Johnny McDonnell's side clear at the top of the FAI Eircom League table.

Joseph Ndo provided the inch-perfect pass to Mark Quigley that deserved to be finished off, but Patrick Jennings made the save and Darren Kelly the follow-up clearance.

Derry enjoyed a spell of pressure after that, relying on McCourt to provide the inspiration and cutting edge in the visitors box.

He rose highest to deliver a dangerous flick on from a corner he had won himself before, in the 20th minute, setting off on a trademark run - cutting in from the left, he was just denied a shot. …
