MARK Coyle is suspended as Finn Harps head for Longford Town on Saturday evening.
Harps currently occupy the play-off spot and could move 15 points clear of bottom side Longford with a win at Bishopsgate (7.45pm),
Last weekend, Kosovar Sadiki’s 47th minute header gave Harps a 1-0 win at Sligo Rovers, but Coyle’s late red card means he will have to sit out the trip to the Midlands.
Mark Timlin, who has been beset by injuries this season, misses the game through injury. There are doubts over the fitness of Adam Foley, Karl O’Sullivan and Stephen Doherty.
Harps manager Ollie Horgan said: “There has been very little between the two sides in both games this season and Saturday night will be no different.
“Any side that can push Shamrock Rovers up until the last kick of the game, on three separate occasions no less, has a lot of quality about them and Longford will be well up for the fight.
“We rode our luck at times in Sligo but we’ve played a lot better in games and lost, so it was a big lift to come away with the three points.
“We need to build on that now and start putting some results together if we want to have a chance of moving up the table.”Tags:
