Meanwhile, Derry City lost 3-1 last night at home to St. Patrick's Athletic in the League of Ireland.
It means the race for Europe goes down to the final matches of the season on Friday, when Declan Devine's men host Finn Harps.
Due to Derry's goal difference, a draw should be enough for them to reach next season's Europa League qualifiers.
The Candystripes are fourth, two points clear of St. Pat's but have a goal difference of plus 20 over the Dubliners, who travel to champions Dundalk in their last game.
