Preview: Dundalk vs Finn Harps

Finn Harps take on Europa League bound Dundalk on Sunday in their penultimate away game of the season. Kick-off at Oriel Park is 5pm and the game is live on

The two sides met in early March this season in the final game before the COVID stoppage. Dundalk ran out 4-0 winners at Finn Park.

Speaking ahead of the game, Ollie Horgan said: “In our situation with only five games left to play, every game is vital. Dundalk are a top quality side. They had a huge achievement during the week and will be full of confidence. It’s going to be a very tough game, we’ll need to be at our very best and hope that they have an off day to come away with anything.”

In team news, David Webster is available for selection once again having served a one game suspension last weekend. Mark Timlin continues his recovery while Tom McDermott and Ruairi Harkin are doubtful having missed the last two match squads. Manager Ollie Horgan will be back in the dugout once again having missed out last Sunday.
