Drogheda United take on Finn Harps, in a must-win game for the visitors, at United Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Harps will be looking for all three points as they fight to stay in the premier division but they must plan without Shaun McGowan as he is suspended for the trip to United Park.

For Drogheda, Paul Skinner looks likely to make his first league start in goal, with first choice Dan Connor still out with a long-term injury, and regular stand-in Jamie Ewings struggling to be fit.

And 18-year-old Mick Clarke looks set to continue at right-back following his impressive showing in Cork two weeks ago.

Brian Shelley, Shane Robinson and Richie Baker are all suspended, although United welcome midfielder Adam Hughes back from suspension.

Up front, Guy Bates has returned to training this week and could possibly feature from the bench.
