Wexford were out-scored by 0-11 to 0-4 in the second-half as they succumbed to Derry in round three of the National Football League at Wexford Park on Sunday.

The home-side were the benefactors of poor finishing by Derry as Wexford recovered from a slow start to draw on 0-6 apiece late in the first-half, before reaching the break trailing by 0-6 to 0-8. Ben Brosnan narrowed the gap on the restart with a pointed free, before Derry reeled-off six unanswered points as they eventually reflected their overall superiority on the scoresheet in emphatic fashion to leave Wexford shattered at the end.

But, with a win over Longford and draw with Armagh already in the bag, Wexford remain well placed a tight Division 3, although they now face a tricky away trip to Louth on Sunday in advance of further searching tests against current group-leaders Westmeath (home), together with Galway (away) and Laois (home).
