The first additional period was almost over when Patterson brilliantly controlled the ball on his chest and fired it home.

Candystripes manager Declan Devine had brought the Northern Ireland international off the subs' bench and he responded by scoring the goal that put Derry 2-1 up from the penalty spot.

After a dull first half St. Pat's had taken the lead in the 53rd minute when Sean O'Connor netted direct from a free kick.

But Derry were back on level terms within a minute after Stewart Greacen scored with a header.

Patterson then sent the 'keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot to make it 2-1 after a foul on Stephen McLaughlin in the box.

But Christy Fagan forced extra time when he netted from close range with four minutes left.

Then came that dramatic winner in the last minute of the first period as Derry repeated their 2006 triumph over the same opposition.
