Former Kerry defender Marc Ó Sé says it will be interesting to see how Mayo cope if they are set to be without a couple of their stars for next weekend’s All-Ireland SFC qualifier clash against Monaghan.
James Horan’s side were drawn against the Farney men on Monday morning and are believed to have a number of injury concerns for the Castlebar showdown on Saturday week, with Michael Plunkett ruled out and attacked Ryan O’Donoghue amongst those racing to be fit.
Speaking on The42.ie podcast, Ó Sé says Mayo could be down “serious talent” for the do-or-die encounter at MacHale Park.
“I was giving Mayo the nod here,” he said. “Monaghan may be a bit deflated after losing out in Ulster. It will be interesting to see how it goes now. Will Mayo be minus a serious list of players?
“Tommy Conroy is gone too. Ryan O’Donoghue has been a breath of fresh air. If he is out, he is a fella who anchored the forward line when Cillian O’Connor was out. Hennelly is a serious goalkeeper. You are down serious talent there.
“I just think it is bad luck. James Horan will be hoping these boys can get back fit.”Tweet
