THE EA SPORTS Cup final will take place in Cork next month.

The FAI drew lots this lunchtime at Abbotstown with the game now slated for Turner’s Cross on Saturday, 24 September.

With a 6pm kick-off time, Setanta Sports will televise the tie which will go to extra-time and penalties if needed.

Derry last night booked their place in the finale with a dramatic 5-3 penalty shoot-out victory over holders Sligo Rovers at the Brandywell.
