TOMORROW night’s Bank of Ireland Dr. McKenna Cup clash between Derry and Queen’s University has been moved to Celtic Park.

The game had been scheduled for Owenbeg but has had to be switched owing to a waterlogged pitch at the Dungiven venue. Throw-in is at 8pm.

Derry’s derby clash with Tyrone at Owenbeg on Sunday attracted a crowd of 5,179.

Damian Barton is expected to make wholesale changes to his team for the visit of James McCartan’s students, whose hopes of qualifying are already over.

Derry are currently sitting with the best scoring average of the second-placed teams across the three groups and can still qualify for the semi-finals with victory, despite their 4-6 to 1-16 loss to Tyrone at the weekend.
