45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Sligo Rovers and Finn Harps.

No added time at the end of the first half.

Two goals from Aidan Keena have Rovers 2-0 up at half-time. Harps have been impressive and will count themselves unlucky not to have scored, but Sligo have taken their chances. Both teams have been moving the ball very well, but as has been well documented so far this season, the Showgrounds pitch is causing them a lot of trouble.

We'll be back for the second half, hopefully it's as lively as the first!

ASSIST!

Karl O'Sullivan (Sligo Rovers) provides the assist.

42'

Keena at the double!

24'
