FAI confirm new date for North West derby

By Diarmaid Doherty

Finn Harps will travel to play Sligo Rovers at The Showgrounds on Tuesday, September 27th.

The FAI announced a number of new fixture dates this evening as well as three games which are to be televised live - none of which involve Harps.

The North-West Derby between Sligo Rovers and Finn Harps, which was abandoned on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 27th at the Showgrounds with kick-off at 7.45pm.

Due to the rescheduling of that fixture, Finn Harps' trip to Galway United, which was originally scheduled for Friday, September 30th, will now be played on Saturday, October 1st, with kick-off at 7pm.

Harps will travel to play Dundalk this coming Monday night in another rearranged fixture. The game will only go ahead if Dundalk's FAI Cup tie against UCD this weekend doesn't go to a replay.

Monday night's game will kick off at 7.45pm.
