Boost for Harps in relegation fight

It's advantage Finn Harps in the battle against automatic relegation as bottom side Cork City suffered another blow in their fight from the drop out of the SSE Airtricity Premier Division.

Two goals in three second-half minutes from Pat Hoban gave Dundalk a 2-nil win at Turner’s Cross on Tuesday evening.

The result leaves Cork seven points from outright safety with three games to go, and two points off Finn Harps who occupy the playoff spot.
