56 mins – Jamie Doyle gets free down the left and pulls back to Conor Cannon, who has time to take a touch and steady himself, only to shoot over. Lucky escape for Harps. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
HALF-TIME: Finn Harps 0-0 UCD. Harps lead 1-0 on aggregate
45+1 mins – Free-kick to Harps on the edge of the box. Gareth Harkin tries to roll it but it hits the wall. 0-0 (0-1)
45 mins – Tony McNamee’s side-footed effort from the edge of area is just inches over. Great effort from the Ramelton native as the ball broke to him. There will be one minute added time 0-0 (1-0 agg)
42 mins – Free from Tony McNamee from 50 yards is just too long. A warning in a way that Harps will be playing into a big breeze in the second half . 0-0 (1-0 agg)
39 mins – Following a neat lay-off from Nathan Boyle, a shot from Gareth Harkin from the edge of the penalty area has Conor O’Donnell at full-stretch to save down low to his right. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
37 mins – Play stopped at Finn Park as Damien McNulty receives treatment. Had a shoulder injury in recent weeks but nothing too serious tonight. Play resumes. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
Ok, latest from the Premier is that Drogheda United, who lead Shamrock Rovers 2-1, are headed for the play-off with Limerick going down. In the First, Harps still lead UCD on aggregate thanks to that Ciaran Coll goal last week in Dublin. As it stands, Harps will go to Drogheda on Monday night with the return on Friday in Ballybofey. Lot of football still to be played.
SPORT: Drogheda are back in front! Great finish by Tiernan Mulvenna after Sean Brennan’s quick free. Shamrock Rovers 1 Drogheda United 2

31 mins – Conor O’Donnell fluffs a kick-out and it’s a throw-in to Harps, who look to have narrowed the pitch. Last week, of course, Tony McNamee’s throw-in flew straight into the UCD net and was disallowed. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
Gonna venture that there hasn’t been a bigger crowd at Finn Park since the night they beat Dundalk to win First Division in 2004… — Chris McNulty (@chrismcnulty86) October 30, 2015
24 mins – Nathan Boyle of Finn Harps breaks into the penalty area but his shot hits the side-netting. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
In the space of 60 seconds, Drogheda went 1-0 up, Sligo missed a peno against Limerick and Shamrock Rovers equalised. Quite a swing. — Owen Cowzer (@OCowzer) October 30, 2015
22 mins – Conor O’Donnell from Buncrana, who is keeping goal for UCD makes a fine tip-over save from Gareth Harkin after the midfielder ran from the circle and shot with the outside of his right boot. 0-0 (1-0 agg)
20 mins – Great run from Josh Mailey forward, but he’s unable to get sufficient purchase on the shot and it sails over the the Town End. Finn Harps 0-0 UCD (1-0 agg)
13 mins – Two corners in quick succession for Harps, just before the first the ball broke momentarily to Packie Mailey, only for the visitors to clear from the edge of the six-yard box. Finn Harps 0-0 UCD (1-0 on aggregate)
Big goal for Limerick in the Premier Division. Shane Duggan’s goal at Sligo means the pressure is all on Drogheda United, who are away to Shamrock Rovers. As it stands, Limerick are going to pip Drogheda United to second from bottom. Whoever comes second last plays Harps or UCD.
GOOOOOOOAL! DUGGAN! 1-0 LIMERICK! — LimerickLeader Sport (@LimkLeaderSport) October 30, 2015
4 mins – Ryan Swan got in behind following a long ball and was sheparded off the ball by Keith Cowan. Good defending. Finn Harps 0-0 UCD (1-0 on aggregate)
Great crowd here at Finn Park, at a guess-timate saying around the 2,000-mark. Good to see. There’s blue and white flags on the bridge intersecting Stranorlar and Ballybofey. Naomh Conaill might ask for them to be left up for Sunday’s Ulster club championship fixture against Trillick
Here’s the team that Ollie Horgan is sending into battle tonight, with Ciaran Coll having scored the only goal last week as the Ballybofey side won 1-0 at the UCD Bowl.
Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; Damien McNulty, Keith Cowan, Packie Mailey; Josh Mailey, Raymond Foy, Gareth Harkin, Tony McNamee, Ciaran Coll; Nathan Boyle, Kevin McHugh.
UCD: Conor O’Donnell; Daniel Tobin, Michael Leahy, Tomas Boyle, Mark Langrty; Ryan Swan, Gary O’Neill, Robbie Benson, Jamie Doyle; Daire O’Connor; Conor Cannon.Tags:
