The Candystripes impressed in Friday's 4-1 thumping of UCD but Harps claimed a fine 3-1 win at Cobh Ramblers and are unbeaten in their last three matches.

"Both teams will be coming off something of a high on Friday," Kenny told BBC Sport.

"The UCD game was quite open. I think this will be a different type of game."

The Derry squad is likely to be unchanged from the win over UCD with Sammy Morrow, Paddy McCourt and Sean Hargan all set to resume training in about a week.

"The League break is coming up and after the break we should have nearly everyone back.

"But our players have been excellent so far this season. To get into third place in the table, considering we have been missing quite a few players has been a good effort."

After being goal shy for a number of weeks, Kenny was delighted by his team's finishing against UCD.

"The quality of the goals that the team scored on Friday was excellent. Niall McGinn's strike and Owen Morrison and Kevin McHugh and Mark Farren getting another goal.

"Mark is joint-top scorer in the league now with five goals which says a lot about the tightness of the league."

Derry go into Tuesday's round of games six points behind leaders St Pat's, who play second placed Bohemians at Inchicore.

Bohemians are currently two points behind Pat's and four ahead of Derry.
