Derry became the first team through to the McKenna Cup final thanks to a six-point win over the Saffrons at Celtic Park on Saturday night.

Goals from Sean Leo McGoldrick and Paddy Bradley helped Derry to a 2-7 to 0-8 interval lead in the semi-final.

A brace of Mark Dougan scores and a Paddy Cunningham free cut the deficit with 15 minutes remaining but Derry held on easily for the victory.

Derry will be hoping for a first title since 1999 in the February decider.

McGoldrick hit the opening goal on 24 minutes with Paddy Bradley adding the second four minutes later.

Paddy Cunningham kept the Saffrons in touch with four first-half points, with Brendan Herron, Tony Scullion and CJ McGourty also among the scorers for the visitors.

Liam Bradley's charges failed to score between the 15th and 32nd minutes in the first half.
