It's another fine result for Declan Boyle's side and comes on the back of victories over Longford Town and Shelbourne as well as draws with Dundalk and league leaders, St. Pat's.

Derry City, second in the table going into this game, started well in this game and edged in front when former Swilly Rovers player, Conor Gormley, struck for a wonderful opener midway through the first half.

Jordan Ryan from Letterkenny, was another player who was impressing for the visitors and twice he went close to adding to Derry's advantage.

Sean McBride then struck the woodwork for Derry before Aaron McColgan also went close.

Harps had played well in the first half, but they worked hard in the second half to get back into the game. They got their rewards when they drew level before the hour.

Corrie Lee Bogan provided the cross from a well delivered free kick and Niall McGinley headed home.

From another Bogan free kick, Harps scored what proved to be the winner with McGinley again, heading to the net.
