Derry to play Waterford or Mervue in FAI Cup quarter-finals

Derry City beat UCD 1-0 in the third round of the FAI Cup

Derry City will be favourites to reach the semi-finals of the FAI Cup after being drawn against Waterford United or Mervue United in the last eight.

Waterford are currently third in the First Division with Mervue in seventh.

Their third round tie was postponed for a second time on Monday night and has been rearranged for 3 September at Waterford Regional Sports Centre.

Declan Devine's Derry side reached the quarter-finals when David McDaid's strike earned a 1-0 win away to UCD.

Premier Division outfit Derry will not take their opponents lightly because last year they were surprisingly beaten 4-1 in the third round by Wexford Youths.
