First Division side Athlone Town could be missing up to three players for the visit of eircom League First Division leaders Finn Harps to St Mel's Park tomorrow.

Adrian Murphy is doubtful following a workplace accident while Padraig Moran is out with a knee injury. Robbie Shine sits out the game through suspension.

The Midlanders have good news also as Graeme O'Keefe and Stephen Kelly return from suspension.

Assistant manager Padraig Dully believes the club can get back in the winning habit against the league leaders despite Town's recent defeat to Dundalk.

“The performance against Dundalk wasn't bad. The result didn't reflect the game at all. We could have been 3-2 up, then we gave a away a soft goal. The fourth didn't really make any difference after that."
