Preview: Athlone Town vs Finn Harps

Finn Harps are back on the road this Friday as they travel to Athlone Town. Kick-off in the Midlands is 7.45pm and the game is live on LOITV.

Harps ran out 2-0 winners in the last meeting between the sides thanks to goals from Stephen Doherty and Success Edogun. Darren Murphy’s men enter the game sitting second in the table, looking to keep pressure on Cork City and maintain their 100% away record this season.

Darren Murphy told “We’ve had a fantastic start to the season but going into the second round of games we won’t be a surprise to anyone, they’ll have played us before and be well aware of our strengths and weaknesses.

We had a fantastic crowd at Finn Park last Friday when you consider the early kick off, and our fans have been superb to start the season. I know there is a bus load of them making the journey to Athlone along with car loads from Donegal and around the country so hopefully we can get a good result and make the trip home a bit easier!”
