FINN Harps’ final Premier Division game of the season has been put back by a day.
Harps were due to face Waterford FC on Sunday evening, but the game – along will all matches in the final series – will now take place on Monday evening.
A statement from the SSE Airtricity League of Ireland this evening said: “Following Derry City’s failure to fulfil the scheduled SSE Airtricity League fixture against Shamrock Rovers on October 28th, the Independent Disciplinary Committee of the Football Association of Ireland has today ruled that no sanctions will be imposed on the club.
“The charge was brought in accordance with FAI rules after a Covid-19 outbreak and the decision of the Northern Ireland Public Health Agency to stand down their first team squad, left Derry City unable to fulfil the fixture.
“The Shamrock Rovers v Derry City game has now been rescheduled for this Saturday, November 7th, at Tallaght Stadium with a 3pm kick-off time.
“Consequently, the final series of games in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division will now place next Monday night, November 9th, with all five games kicking-off at 7.30pm.”
Ollie Horgan’s Harps currently occupy the play-off spot, but will enter the final series with a chance of avoiding that eventuality. Derry are one of the teams in Harps’ sight.Tags:
