Tim Clancy and Drogheda Utd won’t be one bit afraid of coming to Ballybofey tomorrow night for the second leg of the play-off against Finn Harps. That’s according to Harps boss Ollie Horgan who is attempting to bring the Donegal club back to the Premier Division just a year after relegation. The next stage in that mission is to somehow carve out a win over the visitors after the two sides drew 1-1 at United Park last Friday night. “
“We haven’t been beaten in ten league games and then add in that draw in Drogheda. It’s not a bad way to go into tomorrow night’s game. But, we’ll have to take a few risks and see where that it gets in terms of winning the game. It would very well go to extra-time and penalties. Look one thing for sure is Tim Clancy and his players won’t fear coming to Finn Park. There seems to be a perception out there that because we finished second and Drogheda were fourth when the season ended that we were the favourites going into last Friday night’s game. When the match was over it was very clear to most people that there is little to choose between us. We have had a decent run of results in the second half of the season but that will count for nothing if we can’t get through tomorrow night” Horgan said.
The Harps boss is going to have to play without experienced midfielder Gareth Harkin who picked up an injury and had to be replaced early in the second half of the first leg match. Horgan also has concerns over the fitness of Paddy McCourt and Mark Coyle.
