Westmeath Can Take Positives Ahead Of Meeting With Mayo

James Horan brings his side to Mullingar next weekend.

Jack Cooney will be disappointed that his side didn't bring home two points from Pairc Tailteann yesterday. 

Wesmeath led for the majority of their local derby with Meath before being pegged back in injury time. 

John Heslin top scored for the away side with 0-7 points in a contest filled with intensity and physicality in the tackle from the lake county. 

The turning point for many will be viewed as Sam Duncan's black card after 50 minutes which looked quite harsh on first viewing. 

Cooney was lamenting the late loss of the lead:

They now turn their attention to a clash with All-Ireland finalists of 2020 Mayo in TEG Cusack Park next weekend. 

Mayo come into the game hot on the heels of a demolition of Down on Saturday, 2-21 to 1-11 the final score. 

This weekend's results leaves Mayo on top from Meath with Westmeath and Down to face off in the last weekend to avoid a relegation semi-final unless one can cause an upset next weekend.
