Derry’s manager, Ian Broom, has warned that there is a chance that the Clarets could have a serious injury problem on their hands as they look to bounce back from their last home defeat to Kilmazock.
Bom said that he would be keeping an eye on the matchday programme for Kilmazzan, who was dismissed for an early foul in the 29th minute of the game on Sunday.
“We’ll be looking to see how he (Kilmazocks) goes tomorrow, but it’s a big blow to him,” said the former Dundalk manager.
The game is being played at the Derry International Centre in Derry after the club announced a two-match international break for the weekend.”
But I’d be quite surprised if they didn’t.”

In addition to the three-match ban, the Clarez have suspended Kilmachan’s head coach, Kevin McDermott, and the club’s general manager, Alan Murray, who are both suspended for the game.
Bamford’s return from a long-term knee injury, however, will not be an issue for the Clarels.
“I don’t think there is any major injury risk to the player and he’ll come back,” said Broom.
In the meantime, the two sides are working on their preparations for the match.”
The knee will be fully healed when he comes back.”
