Finn Harps lose top spot after defeat by Wexford

Finn Harps

Finn Harps have been dislodged from the top of the SSE Airtricity First Division following a 2-0 defeat by Wexford Youths.

Danny Furlong, who has haunted Harps in the past, was again a thorn in the side for the Donegal team.

He opened the scoring on 17 minutes after Harps goalkeeper Ciaran Gallagher failed to clear with a header and Furlong struck.

Five minutes later he got his second as he latched onto an Andy Mulligan cross to head home.

Harps battled hard in the second half but Wexford were rarely in danger of slipping up.

This result means that Wexford leapfrog over Harps and are now two points clear with a game in hand.
