Issue with building flow for finding the last Friday of the month for a recurrence flow

I'm building a flow starting with a recurrence once a month, but I want it to run on the last Friday of every month.

 

I've set up the flow as below but I'm getting this error message: Flow save failed with code 'InvalidTemplate' and message 'The template validation failed: 'Template language expression cannot be evaluated: the default fired trigger is not defined at current scope. '.'.

 

The actions I'm using in condition are:

 

formatDateTime(addDays(outputs(triggerOutputs()),7),'MM')
formatDateTime(outputs(triggerOutputs()),'MM')
dayOfWeek(outputs(triggerOutputs()))

And if this only runs once a month, it’s not going to trigger when you want it as 1 month later may not be the last Friday of the month.

 

Try using a weekly recurrence set to only run on Fridays. 
Then create a trigger condition to check whether it is the last Friday or the 4th Friday of the month.

Thank you for pointing this out. What is the best expression to use to 'Then create a trigger condition to check whether it is the last Friday or the 4th Friday of the month.'?
