in sport

Drogheda United will take a one goal advantage into the second leg of the play-off in Finn Park on Friday night after Chris Lyons injury time strike.

It was the visitors who had the first chance of the game with a ball being cut back from the left after a long ball from a free kick but the Harps captain fired over the bar.

Harps had a number of set pieces without creating a chance before Drogheda had their first effort on target after thirteen minutes.

JAKE HYLAND HAS bad recent memories of the play-offs.

Around this time last year, the 24-year-old Drogheda captain was playing Shelbourne and suffered a broken leg after being on the receiving end of a poor tackle.

That night, he ended up in the Mater Hospital, sticking around for about nine hours before leaving and deciding to go to the club doctor instead.
