A goalless draw between local rivals Finn Harps and Derry City today saw the hosts move off the foot of the League of Ireland Premier Division.
There were few chances in a tight derby encounter.
The closest either side came to a goal was when Stephen Folan almost put Harps in front only for his effort to be cleared off the line.
Harps now move into a promotion/relegation play-off spot, one point ahead of Cork City. Harps and Cork are both four points off eight-placed St Patrick’s Athletic.
The clash between Harps and Cork on Sunday, September 27th could be crucial in the fight for top flight survival.
Cork suffered a 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Shamrock Rovers yesterday.
