Tonight's scheduled SSE Airtricity League of Ireland game between Finn Harps and Shelbourne has been postponed due to heavy snow in Ballybofey.

A rescheduled fixture date will be announced in due course.

The games that do go ahead tonight include Shamrock Rovers' visit Waterford at 7pm.

Elsewhere at 7.45, Bohemians host Sligo Rovers, St Pat's welcome Derry City to Inchicore, and champions Dundalk take on Cork at Oriel Park.

Finn Harps have a 1-0 home win over Sligo Rovers, and 1-1 draw at Derry City under their belts so far this season, while Shels earned a 1-0 win away to Cork City on the opening day before a 2-1 home defeat to Dundalk on Friday night.

Shelbourne manager Ian Morris had spoken highly about Finn Harps and their manager in the build-up to tonight's now postponed fixture.

“Harps are unbeaten so far and Ollie (Horgan) has built a very strong squad and have got the results to show that.

“You’ve got to look at the loads players are accumulating, and there may be some games that are suited to different players with different abilities.

“It’s fantastic to hear that there are fans and buses coming up on a Monday night. You’ve got people at work and it’s difficult but hopefully we can reward the fans with a result."

The last time the two sides met was in the 2018 First Division, where the teams managed to draw in all four of the games played.

Harps boss Ollie Horgan had said heading into the game that he expected Shelbourne to be well clear of any relegation worries.

“They won’t see themselves as one of the sides fighting down the lower end of the table this season and I don’t think they’ll be there either. They probably feel a bit hard done by not getting a point against Dundalk on Friday so that tells you what we’re up against.”
