An emotional week for Drogheda United climaxes tonight with a huge game in Ballybofey.

The Drogs' former chairman Vincent Hoey died aged 84 on Thursday.

A hugely respected figure in the domestic game, Hoey's passing led to a wave of tributes, with the club themselves saying in a statement: "Vincent served Drogheda United throughout his life and has always been the heart and soul of our club. Without Vincent's efforts, vision and commitment, there would be no Drogheda United today."

They are back in action tonight and will hope to end a tough week with the a massive result in the second leg of their Premier Division promotion/relegation tie against Finn Harps.

Last Friday night Chris Lyons struck at the death at United Park to give Drogheda a 1-0 lead heading into tonight's clash in Donegal.

That was a deserved win for Tim Clancy's men but they'll be braced for a serious scrap tonight.

Ollie Horgan was not happy with how his charges performed in Louth; the visitors will fully expect an angry reaction in front of a partisan Finn Park crowd.

"We're very much in it and Finn Park has been a difficult place for many teams to get a result this year. We'll hope that's the same case tonight," experienced defender Keith Cowan told the club website.

"Ourselves as a group have to come together and be better and hopefully with the help of the fans create a really great atmosphere and a tough place for Drogheda to come and play.

"It's important that we get the backing of the whole county to help our cause. The lads in the squad will be doing everything they can to keep us a Premier Division team. It has been the focus all season we're still in with a good shout of achieving our goal."

Horgan has no fresh injury worries, though Mark Timlin faces a late fitness test after picking up a niggle against Waterford two weeks ago.

Drogs captain Jake Hyland missed the first leg through injury and is again a doubt.
