Wexford Youths 0 Finn Harps 0 (The42.ie)
IT’S AS IT was at the bottom of the Premier Division table after Wexford Youths and Finn Harps played out a 0-0 draw as both looked to take a step toward ensuring Premier Division football for 2017.
The result means that Harps just need one point from their final league game to ensure Premier Division football next season, or a defeat for Wexford Youths on Monday against Cork City will see a similar outcome. For Wexford Youths, they need six points from six in their final two matches and a Harps defeat next weekend to move out of the relegation play-off position.
