Dundalk 1-0 Derry City

Derry City's League of Ireland title hopes suffered a major blow as they were beaten by Dundalk in Friday's encounter at Oriel Park.
Alex Williams' 38th-minute goal was enough to earn the Louth club victory as Derry's run of five straight league wins came to an abrupt end. 
Derry remain second in the table but they are four points off the pace after leaders Bohemians won 3-1 at Bray. 
Cork City are only a point adrift of Derry after their 2-0 win in Galway. 
Williams' goal came on his debut as Derry conceded their first goal in six games. 
The striker, who signed this week from Ayr United, latched on to a Michael Daly flick-on to stab the ball home from close range. 
Dundalk almost went ahead in the fourth minute as Gerard Doherty's rushed clearance rebounded off Williams and inches wide. 
The home side also gave a debut to former Cliftonville and Newry player Michael Collins after he was finally given international clearance to play in the League of Ireland. 
Collins went to produce an impressive display as the high-flying Candystripes struggled to impose themselves on the contest. 
Derry create little of note as Dundalk were well worth their victory.
