Donegal’s Paul McLaughlin to take charge of Bray versus Rovers on Friday

Donegal referee Paul McLaughlin will take charge of Sligo Rovers’ trip to the Carlisle Grounds to face Bray Wanderers tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a team of officials from the Irish Football Association in the North will take charge of Finn Harps’ home game against Limerick, led by referee Keith Kennedy.

Harps and Rovers occupy the bottom two positions in the table heading into the weekend, but both are level on points with Galway United and St Patrick’s Athletic, and are just two points behind seventh-placed Bohemians.

Harps go into the visit of Limerick after an impressive 3-1 defeat of St Pat’s on Monday, while Rovers were very unlucky not to take something from their game against league-leaders Cork City.

Boss Gerard Lyttle says is side need to be sharper to start climbing up the table…
