Derry City have been handed a tough EA Sports Cup quarter-final with the Candystripes drawn against Cork City.

Kenny Shiels' side defeated Sligo Rovers 2-0 in the second round on Tuesday night while Cork hammered Waterford United 7-0 in their tie.

Derry host Bohemians in their next league outing on Friday, having gone eight unbeaten in all competitions.

Rory Patterson and Keith Ward may return but Aaron Barry, Gareth McGlynn and Harry Monaghan are all ruled out.

Dean Jarvis is doubtful for the first of two home Premier Division matches.

"We are getting into the habit of finding a way to win or get a point," said Derry boss Shiels.

"Bohs have experience and the weaponry to do damage so we must be prepared for that."

Derry lie second in the table, two points behind leaders Dundalk but one above St Patrick's Athletic in third.
