Injury concerns for Finn Harps ahead of Bohemians trip

By Diarmaid Doherty

There's more disappointing news on the injury front for Finn Harps ahead of tomorrow night's trip to Dublin to play Bohemians.

Harps manager Ollie Horgan has confirmed that defender Damien McNulty is facing a number of weeks on the sidelines after suffering a medial ligament injury in the early minutes of Friday night's game against Wexford Youths.

His place at right back at Dalymount Park tomorrow night is likely to be filled by Ethan Boyle.

The problems however, don't end there. Sean Houston is battling to be fit and is rated doubtful for Friday night.

He has been hampered of late by a groin problem and Horgan was set to find out more about the player's condition at training last night.

Gareth Harkin remains out while there are concerns over Josh Mailey (hamstring) and Tony McNamee (knee).

McNamee was on the bench against Wexford last Friday night but whether or not he sees any action against Bohs remains uncertain.

Tomorrow night's game is another important test for Harps who will be aiming to bounce back after last weekend's disappointing defeat to Wexford.

Harps fans will however, have been happy to see Wexford lose at home to St. Patrick's Athletic in a rescheduled game on Monday night.

Wexford, second from bottom in the Premier Division, remain eight points adrift of Harps with one more game played.
