Mayo fell to their fourth league defeat of 2016 in Castlebar this afternoon, losing 2-13 to 0-14 to a Kerry side who played the final quarter of the match with 14 men following a red card for Kieran Donaghy.
It was a closely fought game, but the concession of sloppy goals along with a massive 13 wides means that Stephen Rochford's charges will be scrambling to avoid relegation in their next fixture against Roscommon.
Despite their side being competitive throughout, Mayo fans struggled to see the positive aspects of what proved to be a first league defeat to the Kingdom in five years:
1 win from 5 games makes it a dog fight to stay up ..Roscommon game going to be massive,..This time last year Semis were in sight
