Team news: Mayo and Donegal clash with semi-final places on their minds

SATURDAY – Mayo (H) v Donegal, 2.00pm, Swinford Amenity Park, (J Gallagher, Galway)

This week’s events have seen Mayo propelled firmly into the hunt for a top four finish.

The Westerners are just a point behind Galway and Saturday’s opponents Donegal ahead of the weekend fixtures, after Kerry were docked three points for fielding an unregistered player on February 4, and the win handed to Mayo.

Mayo have lost their last two games, against Cork and Dublin, but were hugely competitive in both as manager Peter Leahy assesses his panel ahead of the championship.

Donegal, meanwhile, are in a rich vein of form, and come into this fixture with three successive victories under their belts.

It’s the first time the counties have met since last year’s TG4 All-Ireland quarter-final – when Mayo came out on top.
