Derry City and Finn Harps met this evening at Maginn Park in a friendly charity game with proceeds for flood victims in the north-west.

The game finished 1-1.

This was the third time that the sides have met so far this season, with each side having already won once on their opponents' ground.

Both managers used the occasion to give a run out to some squad players.

Former Cliftonville goalkeeper Peter Burke, who signed for Harps in July, lined out in a Finn Harps side that also included youngsters Kealan McDermott and Shane Blaney.

Derry's team included Slovak winger Josef Dolny and Israeli defender Alon Netzer.

And it was Dolny who broke the deadlock on 66 minutes to put Derry City 1-0 ahead.

But Harps drew level through Danny Morrissey on 77 minutes.

The sides still have to meet one more time this season, on October 15th, in Buncrana, in a huge game that will have a major bearing on whether Derry City can finish third and if Finn Harps can stay in the Premier Division.

With both Derry and Harps out of the FAI Cup, they both had no competitive fixture scheduled for this weekend.

Derry City:G.  Doherty, Netzer, Monaghan, B. Doherty, Cole, McNamee, McEneff, Low, Schubert, Patterson, Dolny.

Finn Harps: Burke, Boyle, McDermott, McBride, Cantwell, Blaney, Millien, McAleer, Bonner, Morrissey, Keita.

Elsewhere tonight, there were three FAI Cup quarter-final games.

The results were:

Bluebell United 2, Shamrock Rovers 4

Dundalk 4, Drogheda United 0

Galway United 1, Limerick FC 2.

The other quarter-final sees Longford Town hosting double-chasing Cork City tomorrow.
