DAMIEN MCNULTY says Finn Harps will fight right to the finish in the battle to avoid relegation from the Premier Division.
McNulty returned to the Harps team for the first time since July on Saturday night for the 3-2 loss to Galway United at Eamonn Deacy Park.

“People can say we haven’t been scoring many goals, but the spirit is good,” McNulty told Donegal Sport Hub.
“It’s not as if we’re not trying – we’re trying our balls off to be honest. Hopefully we can go to Sligo and get something out of that game.
“Ollie has it drummed into us. We have a never-say-die attutude and it’ll stay that way. We know we’re in a dogfight.
“We’ve a big week or two now. It’s Tuesday-Friday, Tuesday-Friday. It’s relentless.”
Harps face Sligo Rovers at the Showgrounds tomorrow evening, but have taken heart by how they made Galway finish despite allowing the Tribesmen go three up.
McNulty said: “We gave ourselves a mountain to climb after being three-nil down.
“We spoke at half-time and said to keep it tight and maybe we’d nick a goal. After 20 seconds we were three down and the game was more or less dead and buried. We gave it a go, but it was just one of those nights.[adrotate group=”83”]
“You can’t give any team that kind of head start, but we’ll just regroup and move on to Sligo on Tuesday night.”
