EA Sports Cup holders Drogheda United will take on the FAI Cup holders Derry City in the semi-final of this season’s EA Sports Cup.

The draw, which was held live on RTÉ’s MNS, gave Mick Cooke’s men a testing trip to the Brandywell in order to defend their trophy.

The other semi-finals sees either Shamrock Rovers or St Patrick’s Athletic welcome league champions Sligo Rovers.

The dates of the semi-finals will be confirmed in due course.
