Harps & Cockhill clash in cup tonight

OAfter Friday night's scoreless draw with Waterford United, Finn Harps are back in action tonight (Monday) when they face Ulster Senior League champions Cockhill Celtic at Finn Park (kick-off 7.45pm) in the first round of the EA Sports League Cup.

Cockhill Celtic have beaten senior opposition before in the competition knocking out Galway United in 2011.

Harps boss Ollie Horgan is expecting a tough game tonight.

Diarmaid Doherty will have updates tonight on Highland from kick off time. 

Horgan began his Finn Harps tenure on Friday Night past with a scoreless draw against Waterford United.

It  was a useful opening night for Harps who were happy to start the campaign by taking a point against one of the title favourites.

Harps Captain Kevin Mc Hugh said a draw was a fair result.
