Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan is demanding a better start from his team at Eamonn Deacy Park tomorrow evening against Galway Utd (kick-off 7.45). That’s after Harps conceded two goals in the first half-hour against Longford Town on Bank Holiday Monday. “We were 2-0 down by the half-hour at Finn Park on Monday against Longford and ended up losing the game. That wasn’t good enough and our defending has to be a lot better than that if we are to have a chance of staying with the leading pack in this division. Galway drew down in Cobh on Monday night and with home advantage they will be giving it everything to get the three points. For us this is the first of two tough games before mid-season break as we then have UCD in Ballybofey. Against Galway the lads will really have to be determined to match the likes of Gary Shanaghan and Ryan Connolly who are very talented players. They will also have the extra motivation after losing to us at Finn Park when Jesse Devers got us that late winner” Horgan said.
Harps will not have midfielder Tommy McBride who is suspended after receiving a red card against Longford on Monday. Liam Walsh, Lee Toland and Adam Duffy are joined on the injured list by Paddy McCourt. Horgan also has doubts over Ciaran O’Connor, John O’Flynn and Mark Coyle.
Injured: Liam Walsh, Adam Duffy, Lee Toland, Paddy McCourt
Doubtful: Ciaran O’Connor, John O’Flynn, Mark Coyle
Suspended: Tommy McBride
