Perhaps no surprise, but there is a dreadfully poor attendance at Finn Park tonight. Strange that making the play-offs early has worked to the club’s disadvantage, for a couple of weeks’ finances at least.
Wexford Youths, the SSE Airtricity League of Ireland First Division champions, are given a guard of honour by Harps as they take to the field.
Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; Keith Cowan, Matthew Crossan, Packie Mailey; Damien McNulty, Michael Funston, Tony McNamee, Kieran McDaid, Ciaran Coll; BJ Banda; Wilfried Tagbo.
Subs: Kevin McHugh, Gareth Harkin, Conor Keddy, Lee McCarron, Josh Mailey, Gareth Doherty.
Ollie Horgan makes four changes tonight as Damien McNulty, Tony McNamee, Wilfried Tagbo and Ciaran Coll return to the starting line-up. BJ Banda retains his place in attack while Kieran McDaid keeps his spot in the midfield.Tags:
