Substitute Alan Dillon only lasted a few minutes before being forced off with a foot injury.

Dillon scored a cruical point to level the game but faces an anxious few days to establish the extent of the injury as he awaits of a scan he underwent before leaving Dublin yesterday.

Cillian O'Connor also underwent a scan to assess an ankle injury that he picked up but it is not expected to greatly compromise his preparations for the replay.

Another substitute, Evan Regan, had concussion symptoms after his clash of heads with Denis Bastick during the final passage of play.

Regan had to be helped off by Mayo medical staff in a clearly distressed state and he too underwent tests yesterday morning.

Diarmuid Connolly appeared to briefly have an issue with his groin during the first half but was able to run it off.

The issue will be monitored by the Dublin camp this week.
