Harps travel to Tallaght Stadium for the third time this season on Friday night knowing a win would all but guarantee a playoff spot. Harps will face an uphill task against a team that has only lost twice at home in the league this season, and Rovers have only shipped a measly 7 goals in their 16 home games to date.
"Rovers are the only team in the premier division that we have not scored against this season which shows the task ahead of us. With Rovers players playing for places ahead of the cup final and the depth of their squad this will be a very difficult game. But we will prepare as well as possible and look to do ourselves justice on the night."
In team news defender Daniel O’Reilly and Harps top scorer Nathan Boyle are available again after being suspended against UCD.
