Finn Harps to Win

The Premier Division’s bottom two and prime relegation contenders Finn Harps and UCD meet in Ballybofey on Friday evening where a victory for the hosts is in the offing. The struggling Students have lost six and drawn one of their seven away assignments since their recent promotion, shipping a galling 23 goals along the way. Harps won their last home fixture against Shelbourne and they can capitalise on their visitor’s travel sickness to prevail again here.

Under 2.5 Goals

Finn Harps and UCD drew 0-0 when they last met in a drab encounter in Dublin at the end of February and another game of few chances is anticipated when the sides renew acquaintances in Donegal on Friday. UCD are the Premier Division’s lowest-scoring team this season, though they are the only outfit to have notched less often than Finn Harps. With quality lacking in both camps, we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to hit the net.

Both Teams to Score – No

Andrew Myler’s UCD have already failed to score in a whopping 57% of their Premier Division fixtures this term, though Ollie Horgan’s Harps haven’t fared much better, drawing a blank in 43% of their top tier matches so far. The net didn’t ripple once when Finn Harps and UCD last met in February and a stake on both teams not to score appeals again on Friday when these goal-shy sides collide.

Finn Harps

Ellie N’Zeyi and David Webster are both considered doubtful for Finn Harps this week. Harps lost 3-1 at leaders Shamrock Rovers on Monday, though that result was always on the cards and their confidence shouldn’t be too tented from the defeat. Harps enjoyed a 1-0 win over Shelbourne in their last outing at Finn Park.


UCD have a clean bill of health ahead of Friday’s trip to the north west, though an unblemished injury record has done little to improve the Students’ fortunes. UCD made the most of a one-man advantage to snatch a draw against Dundalk last week, though they are still searching for their first victory of the new campaign.
