Finn Harps boss says players are up for Cork clash

Ollie Horgan
Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan sends his players out to take on Cork tomorrow night to end a run of seven successive matches.
Ollie (pictured)  said on Sunday: “We are going out to get a result tomorrow night at Finn Park. It’s going to be very difficult against Cork but our players are up for the battle.
“We have a number of players with niggles and knocks from the game on Friday night.
“Barry Molloy and Gareth Harkin are the most serious worries in terms of being fit for tomorrow night.”
He added: “Cork are flying at the moment and John Caufield has done a great job down there. They are scoring goals and at the same time they are conceding very little.”
Despite the home defeat against relegation favourites Longford Town on Friday night, Horgan was heartened by the performance of the team.
He said: “Everyone of them put in a big shift and we deserved at least a draw. We created enough chances but again we just couldn’t score.
“The lads are up for the fight and are determined to try and end the poor run that we are on. They have been totally committed all season. We had them in yesterday and this morning we were in the Aura training.”
The game on Monday night is the rescheduled League of Ireland Premier Division match against title contenders Cork City in Ballybofey and is due to kick off at 8pm.
