In-form Finn Harps gave their hopes of securing Premier Division safety a real shot in the arm with victory over Galway United on Friday night.

However, Ollie Horgan has not ruled out the possibility of adding further to his squad during the July transfer window.

His newest addition, Ruairí Keating, came on as a second half substitute during the 1-0 win over Galway at the weekend.

The striker rejoined Harps for a third spell earlier in the week.

But because of long-term injuries to at least two of his players, Horgan said he might still seek to add to his options.

“We are always looking for players,” Horgan said.

“The ones I targeted and asked went elsewhere.

“But we didn’t foresee the long-term injuries for Gareth Harkin and Ciaran Coll. They’ve left us a little bit lopsided.

“Yeah, we’d love to get someone in that could fill their positions. But that’s easier said than done.”

In the meantime, Horgan and Harps turn their attentions to another big game this weekend. The Ballybofey club travel to the Carlisle Grounds on Saturday to play a Bray Wanderers side who are showing real signs of improvement in recent weeks.

They beat Wexford Youths last Saturday week and on Friday night, drew 0-0 at Bohemians.

Harps though, are now 10 points clear of Bray, and a massive 15 points ahead of Longford who remain in the automatic relegation spot.
