Mayo travelled to Clones on Sunday seeking to claim two valuable League points but, coming up against a well-drilled and hard-working Monaghan outfit, they were forced to come away from this Round 4 game empty-handed. With just three points on the board heading into the final three matches, James Horan's team now face a battle to avoid the drop from Division One.
In this episode of the Mayo News football podcast we cover the action from St Tiernach's Park, we get the post-game reaction from both camps and we consider where the defeat to Monaghan leaves the Green and Red.
We start this episode soon after the full-time whistle had sounded in Clones. Co-hosts Rob Murphy and John Gunnigan of the Mayo GAA Blog are joined in the press box at St Tiernach's Park by Ger Flanagan of the Mayo News for a quick overview of the game. Then we hear about the key in-game moments with Rob and John.
Post-match, Rob gets the thoughts of Mayo News columnist Sean Rice and we also hear post-game reaction from Mayo manager James Horan, which leads onto a discussion among Rob, John and Ger on recent comments posted about Mayo players on social media.
Rounding off this episode we get the views from the opposing camp. Rob chats with ex-Monaghan player Paul Finlay while we also hear post-game thoughts from Monaghan manager Seamus 'Banty' McEnaney.
