Mayo have plenty to work on following their Connacht SFC quarter-final win over London, according to manager Stephen Rochford.
Having narrowly avoided defeat when the two sides met in 2011, Mayo were keen to avoid a repeat and had more or less put the match to bed by half-time thanks to goals from Conor Loftus and Jason Doherty.
London staged a mini-fight back after the interval but Mayo had too much in hand and ran out 2-16 to 0-9 winners to set-up a semi-final clash against Galway in three weeks time.
While pleased with the win, Rochford believes they will have to improve before the June 18 clash.
“Well in any championship game when you come out with a win you can look at it as job done and move on. We took the game quite serious and at times I thought we played well. Our execution though was nowhere where we expected it to be and nowhere where it will be needed further on," Rochford said.
“We still racked up 18 scores - some of them were difficult chances. But we missed one or two easy ones. It’s the first round of the championship, there is always going to be things to work on.
“We’ve got a win out of today and this will create a certain amount of momentum - Galway are going to be tough opposition. We will be putting our heads down and looking to address some of those issues.”
