Huge result for the home side!
Adam Foley (Drogheda United) scores.
Well. I am guessing that Ollie Horgan will have words about this potential winner here. Evan Weir seems to be caught out from a ball played down the line as Connolly gets past him. He wins the ball but looks to have come through the back of the Harps player. It is played forward and finds its way to Adam Foley who slots home.
Getting a bit frantic here as both sides aim to get a crucial winner
Close! A free comes in that is flicked on in the Harps box. Foley sticks out a leg and it just trickles wide.
Barry McNamee is down at the moment but this looks serious. Devers comes on for him.
Drogheda have definitely upped the ante since that goal went in. Nugent with another cross that is flicked on by Brennan. It just evades Gary Deegan though.
Darragh Nugent gets in a decent cross towards Ryan Brennan but Jose Carrillo is able to head it away under pressure.
Dayle Rooney delievers a free just near the corner flag. The heads are up but it is headed wide by Dane Massey as Filip Mihaljevic is challenging with him.
No scores here at the break
Good build up play from the away side leads to the first effort on target. Ethan Boyle and Barry McNamee combine before a pass inside to Ryan Rainey. His shot is straight at Sam Long though. Either side and that would have been the opener.
A corner is floated in by Bastien Hery which is cleared out. Ryan Connolly's shot is harmlessly over the bar.
A couple of Finn Harps fans making themselves heard
Harps win a free-kick in a dangerous area. Ryan Rainey blasts it straight into the wall though
Dane Massey is seeking treatment at the moment after a collision in the air with Filip Mihaljevic.
Harps win a throw in down by the corner. It is only half-cleared into the direction of Bastien Hery. His effort goes over the bar though.
No real chances so far as both sides seem tentative at the moment. Understandable really given both their form
We get way in the sun here.
No changes in the Drogheda side from last weekend.
One change in the Harps side. Yoyo Mahdy and Jesse Devers drop to the bench while Ryan Connolly and Barry McNamee starts in their stead
Good evening and welcome to an important game at the bottom of the table. My name is Philip Morrissey and will be providing you with the updates from tonight via extratime.ie. We aim to provide an extensive coverage from across the leagues.
Neither side are in particular good form coming into tonight. The home side, Drogheda, have lost the last four on the bounce. Finn Harps only have one win in five games. Something has to give however if either side are to move away from the dreaded relegation area.
