Longford next to visit Finn Park as Harps put unbeaten record on the line

Finn Harps featFinn Harps will put a five game unbeaten run on the line when they host Longford Town at Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8.00pm).

And although his team will go into the match with the confidence of that unbeaten run, Harps boss Ollie Horgan knows that Friday’s game provides a difficult challenge for his side.
“Longford is a big game on Friday,” said Horgan. “They are in good form and come into the game with confidence having beaten Athlone Town comfortably in the Cup last weekend.
Horgan will be able to welcome back Josh Mailey and Michael Funston from suspension, but Tommy Bonner is banned due to his red card in Wexford a fortnight ago.

Shaun Patton should also be available again but Sean McCarron remains out with a broken ankle while Johnny Bonner and Paul McVeigh are doubts.
Although Harps haven’t beaten Longford in any of their last three meetings - two of which were defeats at the City Calling Stadium - Longford don’t have a great recent record in Finn Park.

In their last three visits to Ballybofey, Longford have failed to score in any of the games and have left twice on the wrong end of a 1-0 defeat.
