Finn Harps travel to Dublin today to face Shamrock Rovers, in a game at Tallaght Stadium that is crucial to both sides.
Despite their great comeback with 10-men to draw 2-2 against Sligo Rovers on Saturday, other results have put Harps into the relegation play-off spot.
And with just five games left in the Premier Division season, every point is becoming that much more crucial.
Ollie Horgan’s side will face a tough test as they come up against Shamrock Rovers, who will become champions with a win.
Speaking ahead of the game, Ollie Horgan told FinnHarps.ie: “When you need to be putting points on the board, I can’t think of many worse places to be going.
“Shamrock Rovers will have a packed crowd now on Friday night and they’ll all be expecting a big result to clinch the league title for them.
“It’s a massive ask for us to get anything out of the game, and we have another huge game against Drogheda on Monday night to think about too.
“There are a lot of lads carrying knocks and we’ll have to do our best to manage them and give ourselves a chance of getting a result somewhere.”
Harps currently sit in 9th place on 38 points, with both Waterford and Dundalk just above on 39 points who meet this evening at Oriel Park. A famous victory for Harps would see them move out of the relegation play-off position, regardless of the outcome at Oriel Park.
In team news, Gerard Doherty, Johnny Dunleavy, Adam Foley, Mark Timlin, Ryan Rainey and Ethan Boyle are doubts.
Harps will be without the suspended Kosovar Sadiki following his 4th minute red card against Sligo.
Doubtful: Gerard Doherty, Johnny Dunleavy, Adam Foley, Mark Timlin, Ryan Rainey, Ethan Boyle
Suspended: Kosovar Sadiki
