The Finn Harps U15s will be looking to continue the momentum as they meet Longford Town at the Curragh tomorrow in a match sponsored by Pat the Cope Gallagher TD.  Kevin McHugh’s charges are second in the table, a point behind Sligo Rovers, while the visitors are currently bottom.  Harps won the earlier game in Longford, but McHugh expects a tough challenge from the midlanders: “ We will prepare as best we can, looking to improve on our performance against Derry.  Longford are a big physical side and will cause us loads of problems. We have Gavin Mc Gee out with long term injury and Adam Mc Caffery out through illness, but we welcome back Daniel Gildea who shakes off a recent hamstring problem which will add to our attacking threat.

Reflecting on last week’s victory over Derry City, McHugh said “It was by no means our best overall performance to date, but derbies can be like that.  We dominated the play in the 1st half and maybe should have been 3 or 4 up, we scored 2 outstanding individual goals from Luke and Carlos.”

“The first 15 minutes of 2nd half we sat way too deep and invited Derry onto us, once we got this addressed we finished the stronger and sealed the win with good play form Carlos and Jamie Mc Daid with a neat finish from Frankie. The game came at a cost though, as we lost Gavin Mc Gee to a wrist fracture, Gavin has been playing really well and has contributed hugely to the 5 clean sheets to date, and also chipped in with assists at the other end. We wish him a speedy recovery.”, the Harps boss added.”
