Live Updates for Shelbourne -v- Finn Harps

94'

A thoroughly deserved first win of the season for Ollie Horgan's side, they were the dominant team from start to finish and ran out 3-0 winners at the end.

Thry were much more fired up for the battle than the home side and make Damian Duff's side look very ordinary indeed.

Shelbourne will have a lot of soul searching after their poorest performance of the season and it looks like they will also be without JR Wilson  for a period of time after he was stretchered off in the second half
