The return of Tom Parsons and Seamus O'Shea from injury in the coming weeks is sure to be a massive boost to Mayo.
Having lost their last two NFL Division One matches, the Connacht side look set to be embroiled in a relegation battle if they cannot pick up some points quickly.
However, their next test is a repeat of last year's All-Ireland SFC final as unbeaten Dublin provide the opposition on Saturday, February 24th.
Parsons looks set to be available for that game having overcome an injury that has ruled him out of the first three games and his experience around the middle of the park will be invaluable.
O'Shea has returned to training, but it remains to be seen if the Breaffy man will be fit enough to play any part in the clash against the Dubs.
