WATCH: Derry City come from behind to beat Cork City

Derry City have picked up just their second win since football's restart by coming from behind to beat Cork City.Β 

Declan Devine's big-spending Candystripes had picked up just a solitary point from their previous two outings.

And when Joe Olowu thumped home a scrappy opener for Cork, it looked like it would be another bad night at the office for the hosts.

Derry weren't long in dusting themselves off, and with 14-minutes played Ibrahim Meite was played in by Adam Hammill but with Mark McNulty stranded, he could only hit the post.

It took just four-minutes after the restart for Derry to achieve parity. A deflected strike from the ever-lively Walter Figueira made it 1-1.

Just four-minutes later, Derry were in front. Meite was again denied - this time by McNulty - before the ball fell to Hammill who found the net.

James Akintunde put the icing on the cake for Devine's side, scoring a third with practically the last kick of the game.

The win vaults the Candystripes up to 4th in the table, while Cork remain second-from-bottom.
