Harps v Galway Preview

Top of the table Finn Harps will be hoping to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they host new-boys Galway FC at Finn Park on Saturday evening (kick-off 7.45pm). 

Last Friday evening’s 5-0 hammering of Cobh Ramblers saw Harps increase their unbeaten start in the league to three games and keep their third clean sheet in a row.  When you factor in the end of last season, it means Harps are now unbeaten in five league games and haven’t conceded a goal in 360 minutes of league football – the last goal against them coming when Garbhan Coughlan scored an injury time consolation for Athlone Town in a 3-2 victory for Harps on 4th October last year.

With Galway the visitors to Finn Park on Saturday, Manager Ollie Horgan feels this could be the toughest test his side has faced this season.

On the team front, Horgan is still missing Kevin McHugh and Gareth Harkin with hamstring injuries.  Sean McCarron remains sidelined with a fractured cheek while Ciaran Coll and Keith Cowan are doubts after they both picked up knocks in Friday’s game with Cobh.

Diarmaid Doherty will have live updates on Highland from Finn Park on Saturday evening in association with Kitcheneque, Pennyburn Industrial Estate, Derry.
