Cillian O'Connor has emerged as a doubt for Mayo ahead of today's All-Ireland final replay against Dublin.

O'Connor may not make Stephen Rochford's starting 15, according to Independent.ie, despite returning to Mayo training after a knock he picked up in the drawn game against Dublin two weeks ago

If O'Connor fails to start, despite being named in the XV by Rochford, the Mayo boss will be left with a huge decision and may be forced to bring Rob Hennelly in at number one ahead of David Clarke to look after free-taking duties.

Meanwhile, Paddy Andrews looks set to start for Dublin. Andrews, who scored two clinical points when he was sprung from the bench two weeks ago, could come in at half forward.

Michael Darragh MacAuley could be the man to miss out with Paul Flynn dropping back into midfield.
