Finn Harps host Shamrock Rovers at Finn Park on Friday night as the SSE Airtricity League resumes following the short midseason break.

 

In a promo video put together in advance of the game, Harps remind fans that it's them 'against the world,' although the suggestion that 'now we face our greatest battle' may be slightly overegging a home game against Rovers in the middle of June.

 

However with Harps firmly ensconced in a six-way relegation battle (and even if they weren't, they'd still say they are), they will need to maximise their home form to stand any chance of avoiding taking up one of the three relegation spots.

 

Their first meeting with Rovers this season in Tallaght yielded a thrilling five-goal spectacle as Harps battled back from two goals down before Simon Madden won it in injury time for the Hoops.
