Dundalk keep Premier Division title race alive with win over Finn Harps

In the SSE Airtricity League, Dundalk have kept the Premier Division title race alive for another few days.

Dundalk kept up their recent good form with a 2-0 win over Finn Harps to reduce the gap to 8 points.

Brian Gartland and Jamie McGrath strikes in the second half sealed their win.

Cork City will now secure the title if they win away to Bohemians next weekend.
