Offaly football manager John Maughan says he would be “absolutely shocked” if Mayo don’t win Saturday evening's Connacht SFC quarter-final against Roscommon comfortably.

James Horan’s men are set to welcome the Rossies to Castlebar this weekend as 2/9 favourites and former Mayo boss Maughan doesn’t see the visitors tearing up the script.

“I know the Mayo lads will be absolutely tuned and there will be no complacency around this game. I have no doubt that this Mayo team are far better than this Roscommon team,” he is quoted saying by the Mayo News.

“I think the Roscommon result in Carrick-on-Shannon against Leitrim was a good result for Mayo, because Roscommon might come in with a certain belief that they can go and compete with Mayo. I don’t think they will. 

“I think Mayo are a far, far better proposition now than they were seven or eight months ago. They have had an injection and infusion of so much new talent that they’ll be too strong, physically too strong for them, and that Mayo will win the game comfortably. 

“I would be absolutely shocked if Mayo didn’t come out comfortable winners.”
