Champions Dundalk next up for Harps


Champions Dundalk next up for Harps

Finn Harps return to action on Friday night with yet another difficult assignment, this time against the champions Dundalk.

The match at Finn Park will be seen by many as an opportunity for Dundalk to maintain their lead at the top of the table.

And while Harps boss, Ollie Horgan, isn't one for talking up his team's chances at the best of times, he admits his team have nothing to lose tomorrow night.

“We've three days to recover for Dundalk. Even if we'd seven days, we'd still be up against it,” he said.

“But we're looking forward to it. It's another big game for the players and the supporters and that's what being back in the Premier Division is all about.”

Horgan has more injury concerns to contend with after Tuesday night's draw with Derry City at the Brandywell.

Tony McNamee came off late in the game with what appeared to be a hamstring problem. And while it's not thought the injury was too serious, the Ramelton man is now a doubt for tomorrow night.

Gareth Harkin is also unlikely to make a return after he missed the Derry game because of a calf problem.

Dundalk come to Ballybofey after beating Bray Wanderers 1-0 at Oriel Park on Tuesday night. They've already beaten Harps this season - 3-0 in Dundalk back in March.
