Finn Harps just about get the better of Cockhill Celtic

Michael Rafter made his long awaited return from injury as Finn Harps beat Cockhill Celtic in the League Cup on Tuesday night.

But that was one of only a handful of positives to take from a game that Harps were fortunate to win.

Ethan Boyle scored the winner in a 1-0 victory but Cockhill Celtic can count themselves very unfortunate not to have taken the game to extra time. They bombarded the Harps goal in the closing stages and home goalkeeper, Richard Brush made a couple of telling stops to keep the USL side out.
