FINN HARPS SUFFER HEAVY DEFEAT TO SLIGO ROVERS IN PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY

by ,

first_imgFinn Harps unbeaten run during pre-season came to a shuddering halt against Sligo Rovers tonight. Harps suffered a heavy 6-0 defeat to a rampant Sligo Rovers side that stamped their class and authority all over this match from the offset.There has been a growing air of optimism around Finn Park during pre-season, encouraging results and some great signings have signalled Harps intent for a sustained promotion push this term. There’s no doubt they now have the squad capable of doing that despite tonight’s heavy defeat.Ollie Horgan’s charges won’t face a side that contains the quality Sligo have in the First Division.However, there’s no doubt he’ll be disappointed with the result as will the players, but as the old saying goes you learn more from defeat than victory, so maybe the defeat isn’t necessarily the worst thing that could’ve happened Harps.The errors made tonight will be addressed before the real business gets underway at Tolka Park on March 6th. Sligo were 1-0 up at half-time  thanks to a goal from John Russell.Harps battled well without ever gaining any real foothold in the game.They upped the tempo in the second-half and added five more goals in the last thirty minutes through Corcoran, Ward, Cretaro, and a brace from Neilsen.Harps now face local rivals Derry City next weekend, which will be their final match before the First Division campaign begins.FINN HARPS SUFFER HEAVY DEFEAT TO SLIGO ROVERS IN PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY was last modified: February 21st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:finn harpsnewsPre-seasonSligo RoverssoccerSportlast_img read more
