Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan says his side will have to produce their best performance of the season to get anything out of their top of the table clash with UCD tomorrow night at Belfield (kick-off 7.45pm).
The First Division league leaders can clinch the league title by securing a draw against second placed Harps who have gone eight matches unbeaten since the end of June.
“We are five points behind UCD and they have beaten us twice this season in the league so that I think demonstrates the scale of the challenge we face tomorrow night," Harps boss Horgan said. "We’re certainly going there looking to get a result that will hopefully bring us closer to finishing second in the table. Myself and Paul Hegarty are not looking any further than that.
"Some people are talking about us still finishing top of the table but I can tell you we are only concentrating on being in the right frame of mind to do our best against the team that has had a great run of results all season and are deservedly at the top of the table.
"Collie O’Neill has very good players all over the pitch but we’re going to Belfield to give it a right good go and see where it takes us."
