Derry City moved three points clear at the top of the First Division table by coming from a goal behind to trounce struggling Salthill Devon.

Robbie Porter put Salthill ahead in the 18th minute with left-foot volley off the underside of the bar but Patrick McEleney fired in from 25 yards on 20.

McEleney grabbed his second on the half hour and Mark Farren made it 3-1 with a nearpost header four minutes later.

Barry Molloy shot home from 25 yards on 55 and James McClean fired home on 74.

McEleney's second goal went through the fingers of home goalkeeper Ronan Ford.

Stephen Parkhouse provided the flick-on for Farren's header and Molloy's first goal of the season was a spectacular effort.

The Candystripes have two league games remaining, one of which is against promotion rivals Monaghan United.
