Ollie Horgan admits Finn Harps are hanging on by a thread as they need a result against UCD on Friday in their last home game of the season.
Finn Harps are three points behind The Students at the bottom of the table, but a win would take them ahead of tomorrow nights opponents.
Two wins in the remaining two games would guarantee the relegation play-off spot, but Horgan knows that is easier said than done.
“We’ve barely got two wins all year and certainly not two in a row,” Horgan said.
“We’d love to be able to take it to the last game of the season but if we don’t get a result on Friday night that won’t keep it going til then. But we’re not gone yet, we’re hanging on by a thread.”
“It’s up to us whether we can go and muster up a performance and see can we take it to the last day of the season. Let’s hope it’s still alive come Monday.”
Harps thought they had a win on Friday night against Bohemians when they came from behind to go 2-1 up, but a mistake from James McKeown allowed Declan McDaid in to tap into an open net in the 90th minute.
“Mistakes cost us on Friday night. However, we did show a lot of character in going a goal down that we hadn’t shown in other games.
“If we can’t win at home this Friday night then we don’t deserve to stay in the Division.”
