Harps Manager Horgan says it will be a huge achievement to stay up

It's been eight long years, but Finn Harps will make a return to the top flight of League of Ireland football when they welcome neighbours Derry City to Finn Park on Friday evening for a high profile opening day fixture to the Premier Division season.

Since being relegated in 2008, Harps have endured a miserable time and last season's promotion winning campaign was the first time they actually finished in the top half of the First Division in the seven seasons since they last tasted top Division action.

Finn Harps Manager Ollie Horgan knows that his side will be underdogs for the vast majority of fixtures this season and understands they are the favourites to head back to the First Division...

Finn Harps v Derry City will be LIVE on Highland on Friday evening with full match commentary from Diarmaid Doherty and former Harps Captain Declan Boyle in association with McGettigan's Applegreen, Lifford - with low fuel prices always!
