Published 29/07/2016 | 12:10
Wexford Youths begin life without Ryan Delaney with the long journey to Finn Park as they face their fellow promoted side Finn Harps on Friday at 8pm.
This will be the second meeting this season after a 1-1 draw at Ferrycarrig Park. On that day, Ryan Curran opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Andy Mulligan equalized in the second half.
Shane Keegan is well known to have a good relationship with Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan, and is fully expecting a difficult game in Donegal
'Away to Harps is as tough a game as you can get in this division. There well clear of the relegation zone and its there home form that has them there. We're down a good few important players but we've always given a decent account of ourselves up there and we'll be giving it everything.'
Youths will be without Peter Higgins, Conor Whittle and Eric Molloy through injury. Paul Murphy is suspended while Ryan Delaney has completed his move to Championship side Burton Albion.
Kick off in Finn Park is set for 8pm
