Friday night sees the 2019 season reach its finale as Harps host Drogheda United in the second leg of the playoff at the earlier than normal time of 7.45. The tie will finish on the night with extra time and penalties if required. Away goals do not count in this playoff.
Finn Harps SLO Aidan McNelis is encouraging supporters to pull out the stops for this one “We are up against it after the result on Monday night but it’s still all to play for. We had a tremendous atmosphere in the playoff against Drogheda last year and if we can repeat that we can help Ollie and the team to keep us in the top flight. It would be great if we can get all the flags up, and vocally back the team from start to finish. We have had some brilliant nights at Finn Park in recent years and we can all be part of making Friday another one of those.”
