Finn Harps 0-0 Derry City: Derby draw sees Harps move off foot of table

Finn Harps 0 - 0 Derry City

A goalless draw between local rivals Finn Harps and Derry City today saw the hosts move off the foot of the League of Ireland Premier Division.

There were few chances in a tight derby encounter.

The closest either side came to a goal was when Stephen Folan almost put Harps in front only for his effort to be cleared off the line.

Harps now move into a promotion/relegation play-off spot, one point ahead of Cork City. Harps and Cork are both four points off eight-placed St Patrick's Athletic.

The clash between Harps and Cork on Sunday, September 27th could be crucial in the fight for top flight survival.

Cork suffered a 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Shamrock Rovers yesterday.
