Dundalk have gone six points clear at the top after hammering 10-man Derry City 5-0 at the Brandywell.

A hat-trick from David McMillan helped the defending champions to a convincing win after Derry's Ryan McBride was red carded inside the opening half hour.

However, the Candystripes stay third despite the home defeat.
