DERRY CITY ARE into the EA Sports Cup final after a 4-2 extra-time defeat of Waterford tonight. 

David Parkhouse grabbed all four of Derry’s goals in a sensational performance from the Candystripes striker. 

New signing Walter Figueira gave Waterford the lead after 24 minutes, but Parkhouse’s first left the teams level at half-time. The Northern Irishman’s second on 70 minutes put Derry on the verge of victory before English forward Figueira levelled six minutes from time. 

But Derry dominated the extra period with a further two goals from Parkhouse to send his side into the decider, where they will face either Dundalk or Bohemians.
