CABINTEELY

Cabinteely will look to take their pre-break form into the final stretch of the season as they host Finn Harps at Stradbrook Park (kick-off 7.45pm).

Pat Devlin's side are unbeaten in three, having beaten Longford Town and Athlone Town in succession before drawing away to Shelbourne two weeks ago.

A win tonight would take them within three points of Harps in fifth place, while a draw or defeat could see them drop below Cobh Ramblers into eighth.

They'll have to do it without captain Kevin Knight, the former Leicester City trainee serving the first of a three-game ban for his red card against Shels.

Cabinteely have provided no other team news ahead of the game.

FINN HARPS

Harps could go as high as second place with victory over Cabinteely this evening.

That would require both Drogheda United and Shelbourne to lose and for Harps to make up a 16-goal difference, but if anybody can do it, Ollie Horgan can.

He'll have to do it without forwards Ciaran and Michael O'Connor, as both are suspended, while Tommy McBride also misses out with suspension.

Adam Duffy is a doubt in Harps' only worry on the injury front.

 

Referee: Ben Connolly.

 

MATCH STATS
