Dublin forward Bernard Brogan reckons Mayo will come to Croke Park tonight looking to lay down a marker for the Championship (throw-in 7pm).
The two sides are level on six points apiece after five games in Division 1 of the Allianz Football League.
Brogan, who was man of the match when the Dubs beat the Connacht champions in the 2013 All-Ireland final, told RTÉ Sport: “Mayo will be coming to Croke Park to try and get a result.
“They’ve had a really good campaign so far. [They are] a really good football team as we all know for the last few years.
“They’ll be having another go at us, they’ll be having a look at the summer, hoping to have another go at the All-Ireland as well.
“They’ll be seeing this game as a real benchmark to where they’re at and to put down a marker with Dublin as well to let us know that they’re in the mix.”
