But Mohan doesn't bare a grudge towards Hill, as the contact was accidental - or against colleague Donal O'Brien, who missed a great chance with the last kick of the ball at Turner's Cross to put Harps into the quarter finals.

"We were all gutted afterwards, and Donal was probably the most gutted of all of us," he claims.

"He made his mind up early to shoot first time but it was saved. That's the way it goes in football, if we had scored then it would have been a killer for Cork.

"They had chances before Donal had his opportunity to win it, so would have been very nice for us."

Mohan wasn't expected to play at the weekend against Bohemians in the League but his eye healed sufficiently after a couple of days and now he's looking forward to the cup game with confidence after Friday night's 1-0 victory at Dalymount Park

Mohan was one of the final players brought into the Harps set-up by Charlie McGeever and the Donegal side's progress has been excellent this term.

After last weekend's results they are back in third place on goal difference, but this is seen as the most important game of the season so far by the player himself.

"It's up to us to take the initiative as we're at home," he says.

"But then I think Cork will want to finish the game off as well.

'The first game was very tight and maybe I got sucked into the centre of midfield more than I'm used to.

"In Cork it was important for us not to make a mistake in the first 20 minutes as they really have a go at you early on.

"At the end they threw caution to the wind, but before that, in the period up to and after half-time, I thought we gave as good as we got.

"We'd like to do even better than last year when the lads reached the semi-final of the cup, but we can only take it one step at a time."

Mohan's manager McGeever believes his side's best chance of reaching the quarter finals actually came in Cork.

"Cork's best form hasn't been at home, it's been in their away games but I have a feeling it will be a tight affair," he admits.

"But we expect our biggest crowd of the season, and hopefully we can use that to our advantage."

Harps will again be without right-full Pascal Vaudequin Pascal Vaudequin (born 22 September 1966 in Paris) was a French footballer who spent the most part of his career playing in the League of Ireland after falling in love with the north-western region.  who was serving the second of a two game suspension.

 after the left-back suffered a groin injury while playing for the National League, and that could mean a return to the bench for goal scorer Greg O'Halloran or Brian Barry-Murphy.

"I haven't made my mind up yet what the starting formation will be," admits Barry, who brought his players to Donegal last night.

John Caulfield has a touch of the flu but is expected to be fit for selection so once more Barry has bit decisions to make over who gets the nod up front alongside Pat Morley.

Johnny Glynn is again in contention for a forward slot as he came on near the end against Bray Wanderers on Friday night for Noel Hartigan.

"We're in a good frame of mind as we got closer to Pat's last weekend - with 10 games to go it's going to get fast and furious," adds Barry.
