Moran: We did ourselves justice


Mayo's Andy Moran feels his side did themselves justice in the second half of their drawn game at Croke Park.

The Westerners battled back from five points behind at the break and three points adrift after 68 minutes to force a replay as they look to end their 65-year wait for an All-Ireland title.

Having conceded two own goals, Mayo were unlucky to be five behind after being more than a match for their opponents in the opening half but Moran feels it was only after the restart that they played to their potential.

“Half time was a strange place, we hadn’t performed but I think we did ourselves justice in the second half," he told RTE.

“We were disappointed with the way we played. Our performance wasn’t up to standard but at least we came out in the second half and at least, showed what we can do.”

Team-mate Aidan O'Shea meanwhile thinks Mayo have nothing to fear from the replay on Saturday week.

"To be honest with you, I thought we were in control for long stretches and came in at half-time after having a lot more attacks," he told RTÉ.

"Obviously two kind of freakish goals got early on really kind of set us back. It was the same thing last year where we were down and really came back after half-time and the runners from deep got us right back into the game.

"We know there’s not much between the two teams. We’ve had some good battles over the last couple of years and we didn’t buy into the fact we were rank outsiders.

"We knew we had a right chance. We’re a bit disappointed we didn’t nick the result at the end but we’ll be back in two weeks' time to get going again.

"Conditions were tough, both teams went at it. think it was a good spectacle for the conditions out there.

"We were obviously disappointed in the first half. We let a few chances go by in front of the Hill. But in the second half the boys really stepped up coming towards the goal.

"We definitely improved and got some scores and we really put them on the rack for a few minutes.

"We have been written off. I think that proves there is no massive gulf between anyone in this country so we’ll be ready for the replay."
