Derry City are steadily improving - manager Peter Hutton

Derry City manager Peter Hutton says he is happy with his side's progress in recent weeks as the Candystripes prepare to face Cork City in the Premier Division at Turner's Cross.

The Brandywell club occupy a mid-table position after accumulating seven points from their opening five league fixtures.

Derry will be in action again on Easter Monday, when they travel to play Sligo Rovers in the second round of the EA Sports Cup.
