O'Brien hat-trick seals final spot

DROGHEDA UNITED are in the EA Sports Cup final thanks to a 3-1 win over Derry City at the Brandywell, with Declan O'Brien grabbing a hat-trick.

O'Brien opened the scoring in the 12th minute after being gifted a goal by a calamitous home defence.

Derry equalised in the 38th minute, thanks to David McDaid's tap-in, but Drogheda once again took the lead in the 66th minute as O'Brien grabbed his second.

Ten minutes later, he completed his hat-trick to seal the result.
