Bit O’ Red looking forward to final game of the season

Sligo Rovers’ final game of the season sees them host a Wexford Youths side with one eye on the promotion-relegation play-off tomorrow evening.

Rovers know that three points will secure a fifth place finish, while second-from-bottom Wexford already know they will have to face either Drogheda United or Cobh Ramblers next week in the play-offs.

Rovers have already Wexford twice in the league so far this year, scoring nine goals and conceding just one in the process.

But they were knocked out of the FAI Cup by Shane Keegan’s side earlier in the year.

The Bit O’ Red have beaten all of this year’s top-three teams away from home this season, but have stumbled against some of the teams below them.

Midfielder Jimmy Keohane believes that Rovers’ hard-fought 1-0 defeat of Longford Town in their last home game shows that they are addressing this…

Keohane and Tobi Adebayo-Rowling return from one-game bans for tomorrow’s game, but Liam Martin and top-scorer Raffaele Cretaro remain out through suspension.

Cretaro says he would have preferred a different end to what has been a good season…

Tomorrow’s game kicks-off at 7.45pm.

At the same time in Finn Park, Finn Harps bid farewell to one of their greatest servants as club captain Kevin McHugh marks his retirement.

The striker has been ruled out through injury, but will be honoured by the club on their last game of the season at home to Bohemians.

Defender Keith Cowan is also out, while Damian McNulty and Gareth Harkin are suspended.
