League of Ireland Premier Division result: Shamrock Rovers 1 – 1 Finn Harps

Finn Harps desperately needed a win today to arrest a sudden slump that has seen them concede a glut of goals.

They faced Shamrock Rovers in Dublin on Sunday afternoon and LOST / WON at Tallaght Stadium.

Harps got off to a bad start when their ‘keeper Ciaran Gallagher came off his line and was beaten by Rovers’ Gary Shaw in the eighth minute and that 1-0 scoreline remained the score at half-time.

McCabe was then sent off on 67minutes and Harps striker Kevin McHugh was put on as the Ballybofey men went in search of a winner.

It did not come but the draw earned Harps another vital point in their first season back in the Premier Division.
