We’re into the end straight in the SSE Airtricity League with each team having six league fixtures remaining. This week there are three games all taking place tonight that could have an impact on the relegation dogfight.

At the moment Finn Harps sit six points ahead of U.C.D. and as it stands would go into a play-off with a team from the First Division with the student side currently on course to go down automatically. Tonight Finn Harps and U.C.D. face tricky away fixtures against St. Patrick’s Athletic and Sligo Rovers respectively.

Currently Bohemians, Derry City and St. Pat’s are fighting it out for the final European spot with the Bohs currently holding the edge and tonight could move five points clear in 3rd place.

The full fixture list is as follows with all games kicking off at 19:45 unless otherwise stated:-

Bohemians v Waterford

St. Patrick’s Athletic v U.C.D.

Sligo Rovers v Finn Harps (tonight at 20:00)
