The usual health warnings apply here. A couple of months ago in the league Sligo had nothing to play for and Offaly were battling for survival. Sligo, who were down to 14 men, actually led at the end of the 70 minutes.

I can safely say Offaly have improved since then, but they are still within Sligo's range.
If Sligo have a good day and Offaly are any way off the mark we know how this could end up.

One would imagine Offaly SHOULD win this, your right with the health warnings...its only a few weeks ago we were battling against relegation to DIV 4...improved, apparently, lets give it our best shot...

Nonsense, we will win this.
Time to cut the crap spoken here and produce consistency.

Sligo had something to play for in that any team, even if down , wants to get a display going into the championship.
We should have scored 3 goals in the first half and missed 3 or 4 handy point scores. We battled against a storm in the second half and got a result.

That win over London following on from the Meath performance …..we need to push on and I guarantee the players will under Maughan want to get a win.

If a decent crowd gets out and creates a bit of an atmosphere, which the team deserve, I believe there is only one result.

A comfortable enough home win. But....and I say this strongly, Maughan does need to run the bench ...as someone said ...there were a few passengers the last day that were accommodated for too long!
