3-0 Finn Harps and that is probably that in terms of Longford Town's survival hopes. It would take the greatest of great escapes from Longford if they are to survive. But even that looks a tall order. That's me over and out and I will have a report with yourselves shortly!

Longford Town are winless in their last 22 league games, with that run stretching back to the opening day of the season when they defeated Derry City 2-0.

Longford have lost six of their last seven home games, but Harps themselves have also struggled on the road in recent weeks, losing three of their last four away league outings.
