Finn Harps and Drogheda United meet in their FAI Ford Cup quarter-final replay at Hunky Dorys Park tonight, kick-off 7.45pm.

Harps were five minutes away from a major shock on Friday having taken an early lead through Kevin McHugh but Drogheda forced a replay thanks to Mick Daly’s 85th minute equaliser.

Daly and team-mate Gavin Brennan will miss tonight’s match because of a one match suspension for accumulating eight yellow cards, while Cathal Brady (thigh) is Drogheda’s only injury worry.

For Harps, Ciaran Coll, who was sent-off on Friday night, misses the game through suspension while Michael Funston is unavailable due to work commitments.

Tommy McMonagle (foot) is a doubt but Sean McCarron is available after serving a one match ban.

Harps have not played in Drogheda since 2008 but their last visit there saw them record a 2-1 victory.

Sligo Rovers, Shamrock Rovers, Dundalk and the winners of tonight's match will go into the drum for the semi-final draw, which will take place tonight on RTE Two’s MNS programme (7pm).
