The Garden County have a good record against their northern counterparts with three victories over the Oak Leafers last season and will look to make it four-in-a-row as they look to make home advantage count.
Casey O’Brien’s men were beaten in the final of the competition last year and will have high hopes of going one better this year with victory in Arklow on Saturday.
For their part, Derry recorded a deserved win over Kildare in the first round of matches and confidence should be high in the camp.
