Finn Harps will play their fourth game in twelve days when they face Cockhill Celtic in a League Cup 1st Round fixture at Finn Park on this evening.
It will be a break from League action for Ollie Horgan’s side who go into the game on the back of Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Sligo Rovers at the Showgrounds.
Cockhill are now managed by former Harps keeper Gavin Cullen who took over the reigns from another ex-Harps man, Donal O’Brien, at the start of the season. At the moment, Cockhill are well placed to win their fourth successive Ulster Senior League title.
Harps manager Ollie Horgan could elect to give a rest to some of those who have played in the opening four league games while others may get a chance to stake a claim for a more regular starting place.
Barry Molloy, Sean Houston, Josh Mailey and Michael Rafter remain sidelined while Dave Scully is struggling with a groin injury picked up in Saturday’s game.
Tuesday’s game will be played to a finish, with extra-time and penalties to decide the outcome if necessary.
The Harps boss says Cockhill will cause them problems…
