Derry City and Limerick drew 1-1 draw at Maginn Park in their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash.

The original fixture had been abandoned due to a floodlight failure at the stadium earlier in the season.

Shane Duggan opened the scoring for the visitors after 12 minutes of action.

But Barry McNamee equalised for the Candystripes on the hour mark.

The result means Limerick stay fourth, six points behind Dundalk and Bray Wanderers, who are second and third respectively.

Derry City are just one point behind Limerick but have a game in hand.
