Mayo manager Stephen Rochford was left to rue a missed goal scoring opportunity early in the second-half of last night's four point defeat to Dublin.

Speaking to RTE Sport, Rochford pinpointed Adam Gallagher's chance as a decisive moment in the Castlebar clash.

"Just after half-time we created a really good goal chance and didn't take it. 

"Maybe we would have asked Dublin more questions if we had. 

"We coped quite well. There was plenty of learning there for new guys. There are some positives and still a number of things we'll be working on, but the league has a number of objectives and one of them tonight was to win two points  and we didn't do that."

Lee Keegan's return to action was a positive for the Connacht outfit.

"I thought he adapted quite well to his first game in four and a half months.

"That graph will obviously to push upwards. There's another big game next week against Kildare for him and for the rest of us."
