Couldn't do much about the two goals, and handling was solid throughout.
Lost the midfield battle to Ndo and Conneely, and was wasteful with the ball on too many occasions.
Struggled with the wind against him in the second half, and could have done better for North's goal.
His passing range was there for all to see - but wasn't involved enough.
Excellent in the first half and pretty good in the second, Through ball to McDaid was sublime.
Anonymous apart from a minute when his penalty was saved and thwarted moments later by Rogers.
Won everything in the air and potential injury is a big worry for Declan Devine.
Had a very quiet first half, but was much improved in the second and put in some neat crosses.
Outstanding all-round performance from the full-back. Brilliant in defence and even better in attack. Desperately unlucky to finish on the losing side.

Worked his socks off to little avail, but missed a very good chance in the first half.
Not on long enough to make an impact.
Scored a brilliant consolation and looked good when he came on.

Struggled to match the consistency of Keane, but had a much more measured opponent in Madden.
Conceded a needless penalty, but was solid throughout and had one excellent headed clearance.
Did his job, and did it well, all night. Good in the air and comfortable with the ball at his feet.
Was often too deep in the first half, but was much more involved thereafter and got the vital opener.
Missed a great chance just before Cawley's opener, and switching flanks with Djilali didn't do much for him.
Lucky not to see red for handling the ball when on a caution, the Cameroonian had a relatively quiet evening.
Missed a glorious chance in the first half and was hauled off in the second half. Not his finest hour.
Consistent thorn in Derry’s side, almost always involved, and played a big part in the vital opener.
Excellent performance in the middle of the park and combined well with Djilali to create the opener.
Came off the bench, sealed the points with a fine finish, job done.
