“As League Director I have decided to allot the points according to the goals scored at the time of the abandonment as per Rule 19.16 of the Participation Agreement. The final score of the game is Sligo Rovers 1 Finn Harps 1,” said Gavin.

The draw will be considered a good result for Harps who equalised through Damien McNulty, just four m,inutes before a section of the floodlights went out.
