PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "Derry City could overtake Finn Harps with a victory this evening, just weeks after falling 10 points behind their local rivals. After a brilliant start to the season, Harps' results have dipped in recent weeks, with Ollie Horgan's team picking up just one point in their last four games.In contrast City are undefeated in four and go into tonight's game on the back of successive wins over Sligo Rovers and Bohemians.It has been a dream start to life as a manager for Ruaidhri Higgins, but he is taking nothing for granted."We're no fools, we know that Finn Harps are a really good side, well-organised with some really good individual players at the top end of the pitch that can hurt you at any given moment," he said."We know that if we're not prepared properly we'll get turned over, but we expect to come here with a real determination and drive with bits of quality to try and win the game."Higgins could not have wished for a better start to his time in charge, with City looking for a third win on just his 11th day since returning to the club.Cameron McJannett's double at Dalymount Park earned Derry City a 2-1 win against Bohemians, which, added to the 1-0 win at Sligo Rovers, has taken the Candystripes off the foot of the Premier Division for the first time this season.It is a big improvement in a short time, but Higgins is not content, as he looks for another victory tonight."I'm delighted, but it's only six points," he said."We have to try to build on this momentum and try our very best to get another three points against Finn Harps. I've just come in and done the best I possibly can.

."The players have responded really well and I'm delighted with every one of them."The staff have been brilliant to work with as well."I'm happy, but it's only the beginning and hopefully we can capitalise on this momentum."This is a massive football club. If you are not prepared to take on responsibility and win matches then you are at the wrong place."Higgins is preparing for 'a very special night' as he prepares to lead Derry City out as manager at the Brandywell for the first time."It's something when you start going into coaching it's an ambition I had and it's here for me now so I'm going to try to enjoy it as best I can," he stated."I'm sure that when the whistle goes I'll be fully focused on the game."I've been involved in enough games of football now."Nerves are good because it shows you care and I'm sure when the first whistle goes and we get into the game I'll be fine.""
