Injury worries for Derry and Harps ahead of tonight’s Premier Division games.


There are four games later tonight in the S.S.E Airtricity League Premier Division.

Finn Harps are away to Cork City - and will travel south without the injured Keith Cowan who suffered injury in the League Cup defeat in Galway on Monday night.

The defender joins a growing list of injured players at Harps - Dave Scully and Kevin mcHugh are also rated doubtful for tonight.

In 17 previous trips to Turners Cross to face Cork City, Harps have only won once - that was twenty years ago.

City are sixth in the table, with three wins, from their opening seven games, while Harps are one place behind them with three wins, one draw and four defeats from eight games.

Ballybofey's Johnny Dunleavy is a doubt for Cork and may not feature due to a head injury he suffered two weeks ago.

Derry City are at home tonight and have injury concerns as well, ahead of their home match with Bohs.

Aaron Barry, Gareth McGlynn and Harry Monaghan are ruled out tonight; Dean Jarvis could also miss out because of injury.

Derry trail leaders Dundalk by two points at the top and Stephen Kenny's champions are involved in the big gameof the night which sees them travel to the Tallaght Stadium to play Shamrock Rovers.

In the other game - Wexford Youths welcome in-form Galway.

Joint bottom Sligo Rovers play Longford town on Saturday evening at the Showgrounds.
