Finn Harps manager Peter Hutton has this week revealed the club have fallen short in their bid to arrange a loan deal for a “Premier Division striker.”

Hutton consequently refused to give the name of the frontman he had approached as his team look to put an end to a poor run that has seen them lose on four successive occasions as Cobh Ramblers visit Ballybofey on Friday.

“We approached a striker, who plays for a Premier Division club, about coming here on loan but we were rebuffed by the club so that’s the end of it,” manager Hutton said.

Hutton also revealed that there is a possibility that Damien McNulty might not play again this season.

The full-back accidently stood on glass at home last Wednesday and having missed Friday’s 3-0 Harps loss at Waterford United, was due to have the injury assesses earlier this week.

“It’s a worry,” Hutton added. “Damian will be out for a month at least but still isn’t getting full feeling in his toes.

“He visited a surgeon at the start of the week and the swelling was too big to see, so he will be back in on Thursday to see the extent of the damage.”
