Finn Harps can secure top flight football for next season at Ferrycarraig Park tonight.

Ollie Horgan’s men are in Wexford knowing victory would confirm their place in the Premier Division for another year.

But Wexford have it all to play for to, the Youths currently sit in the relegation play-off spot and a win at home would close the gap on Harps to three points while also having a game in hand.
Should they win that game against Cork on Monday night they would be level with Harps going into the final round of games next week.

Even a draw still wouldn’t be enough for Harps tonight.

On the team front, Packie Mailey and Tommy McMonagle look set to line up in defence as Damien McNulty is suspended and Keith Cowan is out injured.

Barry Molloy has been recovering from a knee injury and may be fit enough to line out while Sean Houston should return.

U19 player Gareth Doherty has been called up to the senior side due to the lack of available personnel.

Buncrana man Johnny Bonner will be in the Wexford midfield tonight.

Harps have yet to beat Wexford this season, they lost the meeting at Finn Park 1-0 while it finished 1-1 earlier in the campaign in Wexford.

Manager Ollie Horgan said “It’s a massive match for us against Wexford who we have struggled against down the years and they have always finished ahead of us in the league table. It’s going to be very difficult but we must get a result at Ferrycarrig Park”.

Diarmaid Doherty will have LIVE updates tonight on Highland from Wexford Youths v Finn Harps in association with McGettigan's Applegreen, Lifford. KO 8pm
