Stephen Rochford resists the urge to make any changes to his starting XV and has opted to go for the same side which faced Dublin two weeks ago.

Most notably, Cillian O'Connor, was a doubt ahead of the game, will retain his starting berth.

O'Connor snatched a late point deep into injury time to force the replay.

Tomorrow will see three time All-star Keith Higgins will be making his 125th Mayo appearance having made his debut against Dublin back in 2005.

It's the fourth time in just over 12 months that the two sides have face each other.
