Harps haven’t won in any of their last five games, picking up just two home draws with Wexford Youths and Galway FC. Since beating the Hoops 3-0 at Tallaght earlier in the season, they have managed just one victory – that coming in the following game against Cobh Ramblers at FinnPark.
The three away losses though came against the teams that many feel will be the top three at the end of the season – Shelbourne, LongfordTown and Waterford United.
Shamrock Rovers second string come to Ballybofey on Friday evening having won two of their last three games and sit level on points with Harps in the League table with just goal difference separating the clubs.
Tommy Bonner is available for selection again after missing last week’s trip to Waterford through suspension. Keith Cowan serves the third game of his four match ban while Kevin McHugh (hamstring) remains sidelined. Ruairi Keating picked up a knock in Waterford and will be assessed before Friday’s game.
Diarmaid Doherty will have updates from Finn Harps v Shamrock Rovers B on Friday Night from the 8pm kick off.
