Rochford has no complaints over O'Connor red card


Mayo manager Stephen Rochford says he "trusts the officials" and their decision to show Cillian O'Connor a red card in Sunday's Allianz Leagues defeat to Galway.

Newly-promoted Galway beat Mayo 1-13 to 0-11 at Pearse Stadium to claim their third successive win in Division 1, but referee Anthony Nolan showed 18 cards, including three reds, during an ill-tempered match in Salthill.

Both Cillian and his brother Diarmuid were shown red cards, with Mayo skipper Cillian receiving a straight red for a high elbow on Eoghan Kerin which will rule him out of the round four match against Dublin at MacHale Park on Saturday, 24 February, which is live on eir Sport 2 [throw in 7pm].

"I didn't get a full glimpse of it but I'm led to believe that he sort of a shoulder or something in there," Rochford told the Irish Sun.

"I think Fergal Kelly was the linesman on the spot, so you've got to trust the officials in that sense."

All-Ireland finalists Mayo have now lost two of their three league games this season, and Rochford admits his side face a real battle to retain their Division 1 status.

"Even if we had won, four points would have left a certain level of pressure," he continued.

"We found ourselves in this type of position before, there's no way back except through hard work. We know that."
