Finn Harps will be hoping their second half of the season goes a little better than the first.
The Balybofey outfit play host to St. Patrick’s Athletic tomorrow night (Fri) with kickoff at Finn Park at 8pm
Harps will be hoping to kickstart the second half of the season with a home victory while the Saints will look to keep pressure on the sides above them at the other end of the table.
Pats have won both previous meetings between the sides this season.
Ollie Horgan said a victory could put space between his side and bottom-of-the-table UCD.
“When you go two down in the opening ten minutes your gameplan goes out the window. We can’t afford to let that happen again. Pats are a quality side.
“They’ve beaten us fairly comfortably twice already this season and will be coming here looking to continue that trend and keep pressure on the sides at the top of the table.
“If we can get off to a good start and keep things tight at the back we’ll give ourselves a chance which is all you can ask for.
“We need to start getting points on the board and hopefully put some space between ourselves and UCD and give us a fighting chance of staying in the division.”
