Harps set for huge Dundalk test

Finn Harps are back in action tomorrow night with a League of Ireland Premier Division game against leaders Dundalk  in Ballybofey (kick-off 8.00). Ollie Horgan’s men face a massive task to get anything from the game but Harps will be hoping that they can repeat the performance that saw the two sides draw 1-1 at Finn Park back at the end of February.

“Look this is a team who are top of the table and we are at the bottom so it’s going to take some display from us to get a result. It would be great if we could repeat the draw that we got back in February. Dundalk weren’t at their best for a while back then but they have been in really great form recently so we know what is ahead of us. We have worked hard this week to be ready so it’s a case now of delivering the best performance possible tomorrow night. At the same time we’d hope that Dundalk are not at their best and a little bit of luck would be welcome as well” Horgan said.
