Winger Liam Kearney has had his contract at Shelbourne frozen.

'He came to me and asked to take a break for personal reasons,' said boss Pat Fenlon. 'Liam's just lost a little bit of his appetite for the game at the moment and hopefully he'll get it back. We'll speak to him in a month or two and see how he is.'

Striker Gary O’Neill (knee) remains out while central defender Colin Hawkins (Achilles) is unlikely to be risked.

Boosted by their win over First Division leaders Limerick on Saturday, Finn Harps travel in optimistic mood with midfielder Barry Curran (thigh) their only injury concern.
