Harps back in action tomorrow night

Finn Harps are back on the road against tomorrow night as they make the short jaunt for a north west derby meeting with Sligo Rovers (7.45pm).

The SSE Airtricity Premier Division match is yest another rescheduled game. The original fixture at the Showgrounds back at the beginning of September was abandoned after just over 20 minutes because of a water-logged pitch.

Tomorrow night's game is the second of five games which Harps will play over 13 days.

It's an extremely busy schedule but after their latest defeat, against Galway United on Saturday night, Harps are still searching for a much needed win.

They haven't won since the beginning of July and the loss at the weekend was their ninth on the bounce in the league.

Harps remain four points ahead of Wexford Youths who continue to fill the second from bottom, play-off positoin.

Harps have six games left to play and Wexford have five.

Significantly, the two sides are due to meet at Ferrycarrig Park in Wexford on the penultimate weekend of the season.

By that stage, Harps fans will be hoping their team has managed to stay ahead of Wexford in the battle to avoid relegation.

To do that however, the Donegal side need to start picking up some points, and there's no better time than tomorrow night's derby clash with Sligo Rovers.
