Fai Senior Cup 4th Round
Finn Harps 0 v 1 Sligo Rovers
At the end of a difficult week, Harps make their exit from the FAI Cup against high flying Sligo Rovers. The visitors just about deserved the win but to their credit, Harps made a real fight of it in the second half and in the end the Premiership side were fortunate to advance. Harps captain Packie Mailey was penalised for hauling down Matthew Blinkhorn inside the area and from the resulting penalty, Sligo defender, Alan Keane sent Gavin Cullen the wrong way. So it’s Sligo who advance – last year’s beaten cup finalists look a good bet to go all the way again this year. For Harps – they must now face into the closing nine league games of the season knowing that the best they can hope for is a few decent results and a mid-table finish in Division One.
