Houston double helps Finn Harps to derby victory

Sean Houston scored twice as Finn Harps recorded their biggest win of the season against Sligo Rovers in Ballybofey on Friday night.

Finn Harps 3

Sligo Rovers 0

It was the perfect result for Ollie Horgan's side ahead of the mid-season break.

Houston fired them ahead on 17 minutes and scored the third on 72.

In between, Ryan Curran had added a second just after half time as Harps produced one of their best diplays of the campaign to date.

Harps now sit a full nine points clear of the bottom two in the Premier Division (Bray and Longford).

Their next game is another big one - they travel to play Longford at the end of June.
