KEVIN McHugh says the Finn Harps firmly believe that promotion to the Premier Division is within their grasp – but it’s one game at a time for the Donegal side between now and the end of the season.
With six games remaining, Harps are six points ahead of fourth-placed Shelbourne after a McHugh penalty was enough for Ollie Horgan’s side to defeat the Dubliners in Ballybofey tonight.
“The belief in the camp is that we can still go up,” McHugh told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We’re going for the League, but we’re taking it one game at a time – that’s one down and there are six to go.”
McHugh’s 53rd minute penalty, the 182nd goal of his Harps career, sealed a precious win.

The Killea man said: “No matter how it came, or who got it, or what way it went over the line, it was just so vital to get the three points after the last two months of being up and down.
“I thought that we thoroughly deserved the win. We were always on the front foot, which is the way it should be at home.”
