Harps have picked up four points from their opening two games of the season and have kept a clean sheet in both games.
Ollie Horgan watched his side beat Shamrock Rovers ‘B’ at Tallaght Stadium last Sunday with four of his senior players absent, and he will have to do without them again this weekend.
Sean McCarron suffered a fracture to his cheek bone, Ciaran Coll was admitted to hospital last week with stomach and chest pains and the timescale for his absence is up in the air while Kevin McHugh and Gareth Harkin have ongoing hamstring problems but both expected to return in a week or two.
Josh Mailey played his first game for Harps in the Ulster Senior League last Sunday and will come into contention for Friday's game.
Diarmaid Doherty will have live updates on Highland Radio from the 8pm kick off time.
