Listen - Horgan: 'It was a great result for the way we played'

Ollie Horgan commended the fighting spirit that earned an unlikely point for Finn Harps against St Patrick's Athletic.

"The reality is we're not going to survive if we keep playing like that," Horgan said. "It's disappointing we have to go two down to play. But they did show character to get a draw.
