Derry have suffered a major injury blow ahead of the Setanta Cup decider against Crusaders on Saturday.

City skipper Kevin Deery has been ruled out for up to three months after dislocating a knee-cap.

The midfielder sustained the injury in the semi-final second leg against Shamrock Rovers at the Brandywell.

Stewart Greacen and Mark Farren are also sidelined for the Oval decider against the Crues, who lost to Linfield in Saturday's Irish Cup final.

The extent of Deery's injury was only revealed on Tuesday night following scans.
