Longford somewhat unlucky not to get back on level terms, first after McMonagle hauled down O'Sullivan on the edge of the box. The foul appeared to have taken place inside the area but the referee said it happened outside it and from the resulting delivery Brian McCarthy headed home, only for his effort to be ruled out for infringement.

Half Time

It is half-time between Finn Harps and Longford Town.

38'

The game's gone a bit stale the last ten minutes and neither side have created too much in the way of goal mouth action. 

28'

Sloppy clearance from Cowan falls to Nkololo who evades Crossan but can't beat Gallagher, who saves comfortably. 

27'

Matthew Crossan clears a John O'Hanlon header off the line from a Nkololo corner

GOAL!

Finn Harps break the deadlock somewhat against the run of play as veteran striker Kevin McHugh picks up possession on the edge of the area before turning his marker and firing into the bottom corner with his left foot. 

14'

Substitution

Josh O'Hanlon replaces Michael Isichei for Longford Town.

14'

Harps with the first real chance of the game. Michael Funston's cross from the right is only half cleared as far as Aaron O'Hagan who controls before firing a half-volley with his weaker left foot wide of the target - Keith Gillespie then tries from similar distance at the other end with the same result 

11'

Longford beginning to exert their authority a little bit, the visitors winning a couple of corners that ultimately come to nothing. 

7'

The action resumes and both sides are finding it hard to cope with the swirling wind enveloping Finn Park..

5'

Substitution

Etanda Nkololo replaces Noel Haverty for Longford Town.

The full-back is up and receiving treatment at the side of the pitch for what looks like an elbow injury.

Noel Haverty hits the deck after the first challenge and appears in some distress.

GAME ON!

The game between Finn Harps and Longford Town has kicked off.

0'

Ten minutes to kick off here in Finn Park where hosts Finn Harps entertain early season pacesetters Longford Town. Both sides are unbeaten from their opening two games, Harps with four points and Longford the only side to boast a 100 percent record from the first couple of outings. 

Sean McCarron, scorer of three goals so far this season, is fit enough to start for Harps, while Colm James and Noel Haverty come into the starting line up for Longford from the side that defeated Waterford last week. 

Aidan O'Donnell to carry you through the evening's action.
