Preview: Finn Harps vs St. Patrick’s Athletic

Finn Harps play host to FAI Cup holders St. Patrick’s Athletic this Friday night. Kickoff at Finn Park is 8pm and the game is live on LOITV. 

Harps will be hoping to build on last week’s hard fought draw with Bohemians, while the Saints will make the trip with their tails up having defeated champions Shamrock Rovers last time out. The game sees the return of Harps fan favourite Tunde Owolabi who joined Tim Clancy’s side in December.

Ollie Horgan told “We take on Pats who will be coming up here full of confidence after defeating Shamrock Rovers last week. They’ve had some turnover themselves but have brought in huge quality in the likes of Eoin Doyle who had a great career over in England, and Mark Doyle who was a huge thorn in our side last season.

Our supporters were an absolute credit to the club last week, as they always have been. It would have been very easy to get on the backs of a new team who had gone a goal down but they gave us a massive lift just when we needed it that definitely got us back into the game. We’ll need them again tomorrow night and throughout the season.
