Finn Harps vs Shamrock Rovers
Ireland Premier Division
Date: Friday, 16th June 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Finn Park.
The international break could have hardly arrived at a worse moment for Finn Harps who have finally managed to stay unbeaten in three consecutive matches.
The Harps will thus be aiming to make it four on the bounce without a defeat this Friday when Premier Division gets back in action.
Ollie Horgan can be thrilled with his team’s attacking displays in back-to-back wins over St. Patrick’s Athl. and Limerick.
Finn Harps went on to keep a clean sheet in the away fixture at Sligo Rovers. The run helped the team escape the rock bottom of the league standings, but Horgan will need to find the way to keep the good form going if he wants to avoid the relegation scrap at the end of the season.
The Hoops have the capacity of challenging the top three positions. However, to get there, Stephen Bradley will need to find the formula for away fixtures because Shamrock seem to be a whole different team when they play on the road.
The team is extremely vulnerable away from Tallaght Stadium since they conceded at least three goals in three of their last four matches on the road.
