Player to watch – Pat Hoban

The capture of Pat Hoban by Derry City from Dundalk during the Premier Division’s off-season was seen as a major coup for the Candystripes and the striker’s goals have helped to power their pursuit of the Irish title this term.

Hoban aiming to bolster his tally

32-year-old Hoban notched his 11th goal of the campaign when he registered in Derry’s 2-0 win over Galway last time out and the smart finisher is neck and neck with Waterford’s Padraig Amond in the race for this season’s Golden Boot. Hoban will hope to have more chances to convert on Thursday.
