thumbnail Hello,

The Candystripes boss has revealed that he was happy with his side's reaction after going one goal down in the FAI Cup semi final and is looking forward to the replay at Tolka Park

Derry City manager Declan Devine has said that he is happy with the response given from his team after they came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with Shelbourne in the FAI Cup semi-final.

The Candystripes went a goal down after just five minutes when Shelbourne midfielder David Cassidy capitalised on poor defending to strike past Ger Doherty, but equalised through a David McDaid header in the second half.

"I felt we should have won the game, but at half-time I would have taken staying in the cup," Devine told BBC Sport after the game. "I was happy with the response in coming from behind.

"Now we will go to Tolka Park and give a good account of ourselves. We have won there before and cup semi-finals are all about who turns up on the day," he added.

As a result of the 1-1 stalemate at the Brandywell, the semi-final must be replayed at Tolka Park on Wednesday October 10 to decide which team will face St Patrick's Athletic in the final.
