Soccer – Athlone Town v Finn Harps

After Friday night’s 5-0 reversal in Turners Cross against Cork City, Finn Harps are on the road again on Tuesday evening when they make the trip to Athlone for a game they simply must win. The midlanders picked up their first victory of the season in Wexford, at the same time as Harps were recording their heaviest defeat in almost two years on Friday night.  The hammering dished up by Cork was the first time Harps conceded five since UCD blasted the same amount past them at Finn Park in October 2009. Finn Harps Manager, James Gallagher, will again have to plan without the suspended Marc Brolly who serves the second of a two match suspension for his sending off against Salthill ten days ago.  Ciaran Coll is a major doubt after he was stretchered off in Turners Cross on Friday night, while goalkeeper Ciaran Gallagher also took a knock.
