Mailey says there’s a positive vibe around cup semi final

Packie MaileyFor the fourth time in this years campaign, Finn Harps will be away from home in the FAI Senior Cup.

On Sunday the Donegal side take on reigning League Champions St. Patrick’s Athletic at Richmond Park in the semi final of the competition.

The gap between the two sides couldn’t be greater. Since the two clubs last met in 2008, Pat’s have been involved in an FAI Cup Final (2012), a Setanta Cup Final (2010), finished runners-up in the League (2008) and then become League Champions last year.

Harps during the same period haven’t finished above fifth in the First Division.

It's a big game for Harps and after the league play off hopes faded in recent weeks - defender Packie Mailey says the cup run has been keeping a positive vibe around Finn Park.

Kick off  on Sunday is 1.45pm,  Diarmaid Doherty and Jim Sheridan will be LIVE for Highland Radio Sport from the  Inichicore venue from 2pm.
