Team news: Oak Leafers aim for first win
23 February 2017
Derry manager Damian Barton.
Derry will be aiming for their first win of the Allianz League campaign when they host Kildare at Celtic Park on Sunday.
Both sides have experienced contrasting fortunes so far in Division 2, with Damian Barton's Oak Leafers second from bottom in the table with one point, while Cian O'Neill's Lilywhites sit top following two wins in as many games.
Barton's charges remain without experienced forward Mark Lynch who is set to miss this weekend's clash plus the following three rounds because of a knee injury.
