In the First Division of the League of Ireland tonight, Finn Harps willl look to extend their advantage over UCD to five points with three games to play and gain a stronger grip on a play off spot.

Wexford Youth beat the students on Friday night 2-1 to edge a step closer to the title.

Wexford need one more victory to secure the title but if Harps lose tonight to Cobh Ramblers they will get promotion and the title.

Harps go into the game missing some key personnel.

Tommy McMonagle, Keith Cowan and Raymond Foy all suspended while Damien McNulty is out through injury.

Finn Harps Manager Ollie Horgan says the squad is stretched but he feels the break during the cup action will have helped them..
