HARP travelled to Huntly Park, Giffnock, to face early table toppers Robslee.

The game started at a frantic pace with both sides clearly up for the battle.

Last seasons player of the year Douglas returned to the side — and his physical presence was required in midfield to match up to Robslee.

With the Harp rearguard defending well they limited the home side to long range efforts on Donaghey.

On the 30 minute mark the Harp took the lead after Laird finished off a move he had started to add to his tally for the season so far.

As half-time approached the home side came close to drawing level however full back Coyle acrobatically cleared off the line.

Rainey, McIndewar and Gibson linked up well in the second-half to set Laird free however the defender cleared the goal bound effort.

With both sides beginning to tire chances half chances were created at both ends.

And on 75 minutes the home side drew level as the striker slammed home from six yards. The Harp reacted to this and Connolly was unlucky not to connect to a superb delivery from O’Neill.

It looked liked heart-break for the Harp after 87 minutes when the Robslee forward ran free from a clear offside position to make it 2-1, however the Harp lads showed what they are made of and after a long throw into the box subsitute McCourt scissor kick found the net much to the delight of the Harp players and sidelines.
